of course!
It's located in the LE part of the forum, but the premiss is the same.

We're all hoping that Digi releases full W7 support soon - I've actually gone back to XP until they do, as I identified various problems wilst trying to work on some sessions under W7 over the weekend

This depends on your computer system components and the way Pro Tools 8.0.3 is installed. There are some troubling aspects of this release but they can be overcome. If you are looking for a quick problem free upgrade you may be better off waiting.
