It looks like the work Microsoft did to improve performance and compatibility with Windows 7 are paying off in the world of audio production. Noel Borthwick, cto Cakewalk, maker of  Sonar DAW line has posted describing how the new OS should dramatically reduce latency, particularly on x64 multicore processors. Borthwick also went into more obsessive detail on Peter Kirn's Create Digital Music blog. His conclusion: "I will be building a new DAW soon and Windows 7 X64 will be my OS of choice." The long and short of it? If you're building a new recording system, Windows 7 sounds like a more reasonable choice than Vista, noted.
