Windows 7 is quickly becoming the operating system of choice for many people and Autodesk has continued to test the compatibility of their products with it since our initial post about the compatibility of Civil 3D with Windows 7 shortly after the release of the new operating system. Based on this testing Autodesk has released a new list of products that are supported on Windows 7.

I know of many people that are currently using Civil 3D 2010 on Windows 7 and the reports that I have heard are overwhelmingly positive. So I think it is safe to say at this point that if you are purchasing a new computer, or even if you are not, that you should give Windows 7 serious consideration as your operating system.
