Windows 7: When did you last update your other OS

I work with XP, Vista and Win7 every day. Each OS is on it's own machine, so they're always updated

I just booted into Vista yesterday for the first time in 45 days. It's been 4 months since XP saw the light.

Do some of you just wipe your old OS? I hate to wipe my Vista install since it didn't come with a disc. I made "recovery discs" but have never had to use something like those.

I sure wish ALL windows machines came with YOUR disc you paid for. I don't see it changing. I will be buying retail or OEM from now on.

I buy all of my OS's ... so it's easy for me to do a clean OS install.

That's a great idea. I will do this from now on. I have always just got OSs pre-installed. I will do that no more.

@ darkassain I think that Captain Zero was being a bit sarcastic here ... like "there's another OS besides Win7"?
