Making The Leap To Windows 7?

In case you haven't heard all the hype, Windows 7 was released today. If you're planning on making the jump, be sure to read Lifehacker's Complete Guide to Windows 7 which has a ton of useful tips, tricks, and hints for the new OS.

Is anybody here taking the jump? I played with one of the early betas, but haven't played since. I've heard and read really good things about it, though, and read that its performance is better than Vista. I just don't know if there are Windows 7 drivers out for everything on this laptop I'm running, and I would need to invest in Windows 7 Professional (most people only need Home Premium) because I'd need XP mode for some applications here at the office that puked in Vista (and they only work in XP with a bit of tweaking -- curse you legacy applications). I'd also need domain support, which is only available starting in the Professional version.

Update: If you're hungry, there's a Windows 7 Whopper available in Japan.
