OS choice

i am having so many problems with things after installing W7 (for which i do not blame it, i like W7 so i look at it as pure coincidence ) i have decided to reformat everything and take out my old 80gb ide that currently holds my OS's and have just my 500gb sata for everything. i like a fresh start once in a while and i cant decide (i have XP and 7 right now) whether or not to have a XP/7 dual boot or Vista/7. i dont like vista all that much but i think XP is getting kinda old, what should i do?

That's funny because I was just thinking the same thing. I think that's what I'm gonna end up doing.

That's because you spend more time with it! :P Nah, i understand. I triple boot XP/Vista x64/7000, and until I forced myself to set 7 as the default OS, i was spending more time in Vista and XP. Now that i've changed my default, i only boot into XP for gaming, and i haven't booted into Vista in several days.

XP?
Vista?
Since the public beta release, I've not used those other OSes anymore

I could say that it changed the way how I do things in the M$ world.

I only have them on VirtualBox to reproduce the problems posted in this forum and post solutions.

You just have to remember that it's a beta and should be prepared to row with the punches. Funny, even with XP and Vista released in full form, we still needed to row with the punches
