I use my computer for work and fun, so under windows xp i had a dual boot system. One boot for fun/games and one for work. I had this primarily as I was always afraid that if I ran win xp with a fun/games profile and a work profile then mucking about on one could destroy the other. I also liked the fact that both boots only had the essentials i needed for each mode of operation.
I am planning to run with an SSD with windows 7 and have an 80 gb drive limit. Rather than partition to 2x40 gb partitons I was thinking about using one install with 2 user profiles for each. Under Windows 7 is it any better than XP , what are the pro/cons in particular stability, security and data safety.
