This is what's been suggested to me by the guy that's going to be building my new PC. He's saying if I can hold on for couple more months I'm better off with Windows 7 because it's going to be more stabler platform. This is news to me, I was wondering if anyone else shares the same opinion?
At work (soon to be EX-work), I run 32 bit Vista, because for the particular machine model we ordered, Windows XP was not stable. I kinda dreaded running Vista, but in fact it's been (for me) more stable than OS X.
In your shoes I would be going with Vista now (and whatever service pack is current, and NOT the one that's about to release) and adopt "wait and see" about Windows 7. Like most others, I'd expect Windows 7 to be late and not as stable as the version of Vista that precedes it until it's had time to shake down and a service pack or two appear. Additionally, software suppliers will be more familiar with Vista for a while to come than they will be with Windows 7.
