I currently have the RC 7100 build of windows 7 right now and i was wondering something. Do you guys think it is worth it to purchase the RTM or wait for a possible 8 Rc?

I have no idea when a RC will come out if any for windows 8 so i was looking for some advice.

Thanks in advance!

It'll still be a long time before they release win8. Just go ahead and buy win 7.

Get 7, it's great.

You won't see anything resembling 8 for at least a year, there's a thread here about that, somewhere ;)
