Why not? I got home late last night from PDC and decided to stay up late, watch some TV and install my pre-beta version of Windows 7 on my spare laptop. The installation went very well and I decided to take some of the new features out for a spin.
While there are some bells and whistles out there for the consumer, however, for a developer I really like the the virtual machine support. I was able to load up my VHDs really fast and even set a VHD as a boot partition (wow!). The VHD support is so good that I am considering bringing this Windows 7 laptop to TechEd in Barcelona and do all of my sessions off the Win 7 laptop.
It has only been one day but Windows 7 appears very stable, has good power management, and is fast. It also is pretty slick looking with the Avalon UI stuff turned on. If my experience changes, I will report it back here.
