Windows 7: Back to Vista!

Agree with clean install mentality sure, but have to also say I did upgrade on 2 machines with each and every release/leak and have not had a single issue because of it. FWIW

You did an upgrade. What the hell were you expecting? Upgrading is rarely ever a good idea.

Real men always do a clean install.

Clean install is a better idea , specially with a beta o/s.

7 has had some nips and tucks in the right places - I'm sure it will run better on a lower spec machines.

If you have an ok desktop - you probably won't notice any difference in performance - I don't.

In fact, Vista boots up considerably faster than any of the 7 builds ever have on my machine.

Don't listen to people telling you Vista is rubbish - it isn't.

If it works for you - go for it.

Give 7 a try and see which you prefer - maybe try dual booting to keep Vista running as it is.

Clean install is the only way to go. I did that from 7000-7127.
Even re-installed Vista for SP2 rtm.
Vista is not rubbish either, SP2 rtm "almost" as snappy as Windows 7..

Real men enjoy doing it over and over again.

Which I reckon is probably quite a typical scenario.

Everyone was happy that it worked the same, but I immediately had complaints that it was taking longer to load; and just when I tweaked the power options to mostly Sleep rather than Hibernate, it went pear-shaped.
I don't think it was a good idea to modify a Windows installation used by many people. That is the best scenario for the use of dual boot.
