Windows 7: Using Windows 7 as main OS

I use Win 7 x64 RC as my one and only os. I do not see the the need to have multiple operating systems on this partition and that partition. I have used it as my only os since build 7000 really and it comes up trumps especially now we are hitting the RC. All apps that I use install and work faultlessly. I cant comment on i tunes as I do not and would not acquaint that with my system and the same goes for office and all other bloatware that not only makes your resources take a serious hit but also tries and controls your computer. I tunes, office, nero etc etc no no no.

As for the os itself then go for it, it is absolutely brilliant imo.

All the ones using 7 as their only system, I would ask this question,"Do you use backups for your files."

If you do, then why don't you have a backup for your OS.

They have been known to fail.

Ive had win7 as my only OS since the public beta was released. Had a few issues but theyve been sorted out over time.

The same can be true of all os's. I dont back the os up because I would rather clean install if anything should go wrong. As long as I have got my music/photos/work etc etc backed up then a clean install is the way to go (for me). I have never had any problems since using this as my only os and like swarfega says all the niggly problems are history.

I'm using Windows 7 as my main OS since beta was release. Everything works great. Currently I use 7048 build. I know that I need to install 7100, but maybe it can wait little more .

Win 7100 is my main op sys. I do have Vista operational on second HD in same PC. I start Vista every two weeks just for windows update. All my images, documents, personal notes are backed up on four non operational partitions. Win 7 never crashed ( no blue screen either). Used win 7000-basic, then win7057 and now 7100.
Even if it crashes you can reinstall. Only thing you have to do is to reinstall the programms.
Fully satisfied.

What problems do you have with cod 4. I do not have any problems running it except when it was build 7000.
