I have been glancing back at the many times I have installed Windows 7. I have been with 7 since M1 and have installed each and every build at least once. The cool thing is I have actually ran a tally since the very beginning and here are my results Milestone 1 -> BETA (The Beginning)
10 times BETA -> RC-Escrow (Things Start to Kick Off)
26 times RC -> RTM-Candidate (Beginning of the End)
30 times RTM -> Beyond... (The End)
As you can see...some might think I have an OCD for clean installs (they may have something there) but this is largely based on extensive personal testing I have done. As an official tester...well...you can see why
...anyhow...how many times have YOU installed 7? Post 'em here!
PS and if you happen to be only installing 7 for the first time...don't let the numbers intimidate you...
