Hi...
Will windows 7 have any incompatibility issues? Everything that runs on vista, will run on this?

Not exactly. My Mobile Intel 915 video drivers, bug it on. Even when installed from Windows Update. Every other driver though has worked wonderfully. D@MN INTEL!

Hmm, personally the only problem i've had driver wise was my printer, but I downloaded an official one and it worked.

Yes. This is from Windows 7 News


We have got some news about the public Windows 7 Beta that was expected to be released in early 2009. According to our sources the public beta will be made available on January 7. The full build string for the beta of Windows 7 will be 7000.0.081212-1400 which in other words means that the build 7000 will be the public beta. The beta will not only be available in English language but also in localized editions

That’s good news for everyone who wants to test the new operating system extensively. The final release of Windows 7 is expected to hit the shelves in November 2009.

I want to try it out. Will i be able to do it on a virtual machine? I don't want to install it on my PC because after the license runs out i'll be screwed and have to reinstall Vista until Windows7 ships. Also I'm unsure as to if it will run World of Warcraft.

Just get Virtual PC 2007 and its Service Pack off of Microsoft.com, tell it you're going to run Vista on it.
