    I use 7989 as Primary Operating System. No problems with it :) Compatibility and performance is great :)

    Windows 8 is better than Windows 7, but don't use it as Primary OS.

    7955> 7600> 7989> 7850

    7955 full boot up time - 13 ~ 14 secs
    full shut down time - 3 ~ 4 secs.

    Normally I'd use it, but now I'm trying to build an install.wim that has twinui.dll already fixed and that goes straight to oobe on install (original leak does sysprep first).
    Due to this my win8 partition is currently occupied with some testing stuff.
    But tomorrow or saterday win8 will be back as main OS :)

    I restarted my PC once or twice to a week. A few seconds does not differentiate.
    7989 i more responsible during normal use :)

    Main OS here, and I'm an application developer so running programs like Visual Studio 2010.
    Must say, no problems at all. Also I got one huge script that takes ~10 min to compile on 7600. It did compiled faster on 7989. :)

    I have ultimate too, but it did nothing with trying to open it, but maybe due to some unlock patches and dirty stuff

    Hm,
    I use 8 7989 as my primary OS.
    :D
    I boot into Windows 7 occasionally to play games but 8 is at the top of my bootloader list.

    Using 7989 as my main OS across all my machines right now, no major issues so far
