Who else is still running their original Win 7 install

I guess it's been about a year now that I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on my main machine and have had no real issues with the OS.
only had a handful of BSOD's due to video card drivers and that's it.

I use my machine anywhere from 5-12 hours/day every day depending on if I am working or just playing on the machine.

who else is still using their original install?

Is it unusual to be running your original install? I very rarely ever re-install the OS on a machine?

Yep, original install, no BSOD's, no problems at all!! I can only hope Windows 8 is works just as well and they don't do another XP - Vista-like update

Among techies, it might be a bit unusual. I play and experiment sometimes quite a bit with a machine and for this reason, often reinstall a couple of different times. With Windows 7, I've probably tinkered a bit less...but I do have a system image that I have restored a few times. So, while it's technically the same install...it's not the first time I have laid it down.
