    no 32-bit versions of explorer running in my taskmgr when I run that. My button doesn't flicker like that either.

    You don't have any simply because they didn't fixed it and never will, they simply replaced it with explorer 64, according to M$ technet blogs.

    because it was replaced with a x64 version... but the 32 bit one is there for compatibility reasons... for instance when a x86 exe tries to open explorer.exe to do something with it... or even from windows api

    Some 32 bit softwares don't have an 64 compatibility, these softs sometimes adds an extension in the 32 Bit control panel, and you won't access these extension in a 64 Bit control panel (they don't appear).
    Also launching an 32 Bit explorer enables you to have thumbs from files like mkv, mp4, ogm, etc, which explorer 64 don't make.
    They must be also other advantages having an 32 Bit explorer, but I only listed the one I'm using.

    Here's a nice little bug that I have reported on every build since the start..
    in MyComputer look at the icon for CD/DVD rewriter now look at the bar and put in a rewritable disk in. no matter how full that disk is it always show empty even shows empty in the propertys box. unless you format the disk as a UDF...

    For all it's faults, Windows 7 is 20 times better than Vista and a little bit faster than XP least ways on my PC-DL Deluxe. One thing why don't M$ cater for multi cpu systems in the home editions??? another thing all those games that don't work on Vista most do under Windows 7. :)

    The one annoying bug I'm getting is the explorer crash if 'Restore previous folder window at logon' is ticked in Folder Options. Since I'm using Dopus as the file manager though, it's less important now. It may be a 64bit issue, can't remember for sure.

    I've run it on and off for other 6 months and its a piece of ash.

    Windows 7 is far more optimised in its service and driver stacks.

    Windows Vista Ultimate x64 worked great for me even with games from RTM straight to Windows 7 Beta. Just some issues with newest games.

    I guess you gotta have the hardware... I've used it on a Dell Dimension 9200 (which is a lot of crap)...

    I've noticed the Vista Home Basic that comes bundled with some HP notebooks are very unstable and perform very sluggish even with 2gb of memory.

    Another note, with Vista do not install service packs...

    Integrate them into an installation and do a clean install, trust me!
