Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2008

Anyone here running Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2008? If so, what are your impressions? Does it run faster and more reliable than on XP Pro? Should I upgrade?

I'm actually running VMWare Fusion 3 on a Mac so I will be upgrading the Fusion OS. Thanks.

Actually it's the same, almost no difference. About upgrading, yes, it's worth upgrading, not because VS is faster . It's because on Vista or Win7 , you dont have to worry much about virus and malware like you did on XP.
Its basically your wish. But I am using Win 7 for VS 2008. Its really good. But Performance wise. its same. But features wise its really good. If you are really ready to upgrade, Dont wait upgrade it. Because you can start planning with those new features in VS2008.

Hope this helps.
I'm going to have to agree with the sentiments above.  I have not seen a noticeable increase in speed but the overall Win7 experience is much better than both XP and Vista.  The other benefit, as noted above, is that you can be testing on the most cutting edge platform instead of a much older OS.
It does run faster and more reliable than on XP.
So feel free to upgrade....
