I had bad experience with Windows 7- i installed it on my 9100 inspiron  Dell Laptop everything went well install SQL 2008 and VS 2008 works great and even faster. but, when i installed Cisco VPN Client i saw Blue screen of death. I had taken a system image before installing vpn client.

As for the VPN thing, install a Vista version and it will work just fine!
