I will second that. Everything worked on my machine from a fresh win7

But I think its worth pointing out that a Win7 installation in 2 years
time will have the same driver problems as Vista/XP now. The reason that
Linux always has "good" support for drivers is that its updated/released
so often (6 months in Ubuntu's case). If windows was released that often
it would be the same.

Of course, who would be willing to fork out £200 every six months :)
