If you want to run SharePoint 2010 on Windows7 or Windows 2008 R2 .There are chances that you might run into issues, specifically with Managed Service applications .The issues is due to the Service model fixes for .NET 3.5 SP1 to run SharePoint Security token model to support the token authentication without transport security or message encryption in WCF .There is a patch available from Microsoft on this now.The KB number is 976462 link http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=23806.

So have happy SharePoint 2010 on Windows7 and Win2k8R2.I hope this will remove the nightmare for few and I will recommend you to see the MS announcement on the supporting operating Platform for a smooth installation.Unless you have to run on Windows7 and you have OS options available run SP2010 on Win2k8 SP2 with the KB971831 and Geneva fixes.
