Trying out Windows 7 on my Macbook

Decided to try Windows 7 RC on my Macbook, let's start saying that it runs really smooth on VMware Fusion. that said, Windows 7 to me is Windows Vista second edition, MS basically smooth out the graphics, polish a little bit the interface (making look more like KDE) and got rid of some of the most annoying bugs on vista. Overall is a sep forward in the Right direction. One of the big features that I really like is the "XP mode", Windows 7 have a full Windows XP virtual machine build-in so you can actually run all your XP-only software and application, this is specially helpfully for developers since most of the development tools are not vista friendly. I can also install the VPN client for my company now and actually do some work inside the corporate network on my Mac while away.
