So I've slowly been transitioning from XP to Windows 7 and so far I must say that I like it! its very smooth and fast as long as you have the cpu/memory to run it. Some upgrades been done with the home PC's and now my main workstation is win7. its a HP pavillion with quad core and 6G of memory. Initially I had problems with the nforce drivers where it will peg the cpu at 100% but with a downgrade of nforce drivers its been running smooth.
