Just got it and installed it.

Seems very nice. Liking the 'peek' features. Also going to install Windows XP mode - should be very handy for testing Construct on Windows 7 and XP without rebooting.

Anyone else got it or tried it?

I'm still running the release candidate from back in March, and before that I was using the beta, so I've been using it for almost a year now. Freaking love it; I'm hoping I'll be able to pick up the retail version at some point.

It's the best Windows to use right now.

Fuck Vista.

Got XP mode running very easily. In fact, everything seems very simple and easy. It does seem to be a good one!

super stable, and silky smooth
and the drag-a-window against the side of the screen side by side view is so useful it's ridiculous

Windows 7 appears to be the next "de facto standard" platform. Windows XP share is rapidly depleting in favor of Windows 7.

I'll be getting it myself too as soon as I can find a reasonable offer.

In Poland Windows 7 is over 2x more expensive than in UK and USA, so I don't buy it - too expensive :(

Windows XP still has around a 66% share of Windows installs as far as I can tell from a quick Google - it's probably not going to change THAT quickly, so XP support will still be necessary for some time.

Frustratingly, Windows 7 comes with a very nice Ribbon library built in to the OS, and it can be backported to Vista as well - but not Windows XP. That's a shame, because if everyone ditched XP, we could use a nice Windows 7 ribbon in Construct 2...

Well, it is not like Construct 2.0 would be released any soon, eh? By then Windows 7 would dominate over XP.

It is a possibility to consider.
