My God, I'm not ready to upgrade to a new version of the OS after figuring out Vista.
My next purchase will probably be a Mac where I can put an end to all this MS hype and bloat ware.
I've been using Beta 7 since the New Year and I've put it through its paces. Driver support is insanely awesome (automatically recognized my dual monitors, put them in proper resolution *with spanning* - all before the initial OS install was complete).
The beta is the only thing available right now from MS... and its free until end of January. I'm not sure when it'll go gold/retail, but I'm seriously thinking of snagging this tablet and throwing Win7 on it.

Multitouch capability isn't just an OS thing, it also depends on the type of touchscreen. Most displays, including this one, use a resistive touchscreen, which allows you to use a stylus on it. The other type, which is used for the iPhone and Ipod touch, is the capacitive display. You can only use fingers on that kind, but it is also the only one that allows multitouch capability. In other words, if you can use a stylus, you can't do multitouch. =)

looking at the 'states that are wooting' - it's hilarious to me that Virginia (my state) has lots, and then right beside us...WV - NONE!

My wife has an older model of this line, and the battery life actually seems par with the 17" non-touch laptop I got about the same time (2-4 hours, depending on CPU load and brightness).
Pros: She loves the touch screen. It's funny to watch her switch to using my laptop because she frequently taps the screen to follow web links, close and bring up windows, etc.
Cons: After a year she needed to get it serviced by HP for overheating, and they had to pretty much replace the guts completely because plastic parts of the motherboard, hard drive and internal case had melted. It's less a problem of the touchscreen and more a design problem of the small form factor coupled with the smaller fan and vents.
