Operating System Compatibility for Revit Products

Off the record, I've been using Revit on Windows 7 64 bit for months and Windows 7 is the nicest, most stable OS I've ever used. Autodesk should be officially supporting W7 soon enough so be patient. Funny that as I'm writing this, there's a new Apple commercial on TV totally dissing Windows 7 "that it won't have any of the problems" all of the previous Microsoft OS versions had. Yes, Apple has a point to the stability of their OS, but it's only because they're so limited on software and hardware that they've allowed to work with it. There are millions of programs for Windows and you just can't compare them. Is it really worthwhile to get a Mac and then have to run Bootcamp or Parallels? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? Just make sure all of your large format printers work with it. Sure would be a shame if you couldn't print.
