    Has anyone run programs like:

    Photoshop
    ArtRage
    Sketchbook Pro

    In Windows 7, yet?

    I was hoping you could tell me how well these programs run in it so far, knowing that it is still in beta form.

    Do you get pressure sensitivity?

    Thanks!

    They work fine in Win7. All programs that work in Vista, work in Win7. I have not found one that does not (with the exception of antivirus programs).

    Thanks!

    Just curious, what anti-virus programs were not compatible?

    McAfee? Norton?

    You need to get a Win7-specific antivirus program. Win RC installation would lead you to sites of such programs. For the time being, Norton does not sell a Win7 compatible version. McAfee has a beta Win7 security suite which you can download for free (for the time being). I am running it and it is a good program. AVG antivirus has a commercial antivirus program that is Win7 compatible. There are a number of others. In fact, you only need an antivirus program because Win7 has a very complete firewall.

    Do not forget that MS will be shortly offering a free antivirus program. Its security suite is currently in beta.
