It's your system, but that's incredibly redundant and wasteful. I didn't have any issues with Vista, but I think you'd have a tough sell trying to convince someone it was better in any way than 7. Dual booting is a dead tech and should be left to rot away into history. If you must cling to the past...virtualize.

IMHO it's better than 7, but lots of people dual boot, and I doubt it will rot away.

What's better about it than 7? 7 was an improvement in every way. 7 is what VIsta could have been if it had baked a little longer, and the major OEMs had decided to put some effort into prepping for launch.

As for multi-boots, no...they are definitely a dying, fading technology. Why reboot to use another OS? Check out the virtualization subforum, if you want to check my words. Hell, with Windows 7, Microsoft even gave people a free way of virtualizing XP, proving that was the direction to go in. I'm the IT Director of a small company, and none of our servers are actually natively installed....all are virtualized.
