Windows 7: Windows7...Any Reason not to install on main comp?

Took me about one week to ditch Vista for the RC, dual booted at first but soon realized that I would never use Vista again.

Ive not used Vista since beta was released. I love Windows 7 and wouldnt go back. You could run the Windows 7 compatibility advisor (check microsofts page for that) to make sure your hardware and software is compatible.

My reason not to go with Windows7 RC is:

I am installing Windows 7 7121 x64 right now. I love W7, I will try every version if I can get~~

Windows7 beta 7000
 
 

A. Of course there are reasons not to install Windows7. The main one is that Windows7 doesn't exist yet. We've had a beta which was pretty well done for a beta and now we have the RC1. Neither is a finished product. Some cautious people won't even install Windows7 on a critical computer until SP1 is out.

My personal opinion is that Windows7 RC1 is quite stable and my risks of it dying are like the risk of my hard drive dying. I back up my data and take my chances.

I never dual boot. I also don't wear a belt and suspenders.

No reasons not to install from me but hundreds of reasons why you should.:)

Swarfega, my views exactly!
