Poll: Windows Version Preference, User Folder Loc, Prog Loc

I am curious as to how many people presently using Windows 7 in any of its versions, have tried 8, 8.1, or 10 either the technical preview or the now public offering in any version. The poll will last a week from today.

I would like to know how many people move their entire Users folders to a second drive.

I would like to know how many people put all or some of there programs on a second drive.

I would like to know how many people wish they had purchase a Mac
(This was just a joke, not a poll question!)

The pole will last a week from today. Thanks

1. Windows 7 Home Premium sp1 - 64bit 2. Windows 7 Pro sp1 - 64bit
 
 

I do not wish I bought a Mac. I recently purchased a new computer and specifically wanted Win 7

If my birthday or Santa brings me a SSD I would consider keeping my User Folders on the spinner but not the installed programs.

Hi,
I missed the Mac entry

Either way yes I do very much like 7 better.
I only backup personal files on 2 external drives monthly anything else can be re-installed fresh so it's not a high priority to deal with moving user account folders...
Clean installs are so much fun and fresh I just prefer it over restoring from system images...

All programs and files are always installed on C it's just the way I roll

Downloads going to old Prog Files x86 folder
Today's nightmare is: I upgraded to 64 bit from a 32 bit machine months ago.

User Profile folder - static folder instead of created by user signon
A twist on the creation of user folders on a drive other than C: in Win 7 Ultimate. Does anyone know if one could designate a user folder location such as E:\Data instead of using the users name and being a subdirectory of "Users". I am the ONLY one on my computer - and it would seem much easier to...

Windows with Multiple User Logs/Preference Files?
Hello All! While taking a look around my Windows 7 HDD in Ubuntu, which can see tons of files that Windows won't show you, I went into my user account named "owner" and I saw a bunch of what appears to be Windows Log or preference files. They have long random names and with weird file extensions...
