I thought about giving 7 a whirl myself. Tell me, how different do you find it from Vista? Going from XP to Vista was a big change (for the better in my view). But so far, 7 looks to be like a much smaller change (at least over the hood, with a lot of the bigger changes being under the hood).
The producer/owner of the production company I work for, downloaded Windows 7 yesterday and announced our office going Beta... just to tweak one of our Final Cut Mac heads.
An article at maximumpc.com states:
"The first iteration of Microsofts next operating system has arrived, and things are looking up for the Windows faithful. In fact, the first beta of Windows 7 is so reliable and responsive that it reminds us of the early Windows XP betas. With less than 12 months to go before launch, Windows 7 is in much better shape than Vista was at the same time, and it feels like a much more usable operating system than even XP did during its beta phase."
We are using Vista 64. What issues did you find with Windows 7 and Premiere?
We don't have a machine to spare at work, but I may image my drive, and install the Beta on my home computer.
That's how I describe it. It's like my Ram suddenly got twice as fast. Everything that did or didn't work in Vista 64 does the exact same thing in Windows 7. The new OS hasn't fixed any Adobe bugs or anything it's just everything is faster. After Effects opens in 2 seconds so does Photoshop. Premiere is snappier but I haven't really done any serious editing in Windows 7.
Just don't Install Windows 7 thinking it'll fix any Adobe issues. It doesn't, but it noticeably faster. I'm gonna give it week of testing before trying anything out on it.
Uh... did I hear that right? AE opens in *2* seconds??
Let's see... on XP SP2, AE CS4 on our quad core, opens in about 3 minutes. I do think you mean to write *minutes* not seconds, right?
On my dual quad core using Vista Business 64, AE opens in nine seconds.
3 minutes?? I'm sorry. Before on Vista 64 it took 12-15 seconds to open.
OK I counted and it really takes 5 seconds(I also have dozens of plug-in's installed). Phototshop 64 opens under two seconds. I was surprised all the plug-ins stayed worked straight through the install that was nice.
All the programs are noticeably more snappy.
But hey I'm not trying to sell it, just letting you guys know. I'm running an q9550 @3.7Mh and only 4gigs of 1066 DDR2 ram.

Did you overclock using the stock heat sink, or are you running a water cooled rig?
Air cooled with Zerotherm Nirvana 120 http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=2225
I have an Asus board and just change the multiplier and set the ram. Works great don't have know about tweaking voltage or anything. The heatsink is a monster but works great. 3.7Mh is stable and runs cools. Had it up to 3.9 but chickened out. Been running great for a few months now.
