I have never had any problems since using this as my only os and like swarfega says all the niggly problems are history.
Same here - been using Seven as the main OS since 7077, and had only niggly problems and quite frankly I had much worse with Vista when I first took that up. If you get anything happen thats catastrophic enough to warrant a reinstall you should always do it afresh.

I have no problems running cod4 even on build 7000.
There are some problems with non updated servers which dont recognize windows 7,but that is just a few of them.

If you didn't cheat all the way up to rank 55,I don't think changing new "mpdata" in your players profile,for someones with unlocked weapons should be called cheating now.I did it that way.

You will love 7100 RC compared to 7048...
Just do a clean install and you are off to the races.

Mail is best brought in on someone else's server for reading and analysing i.e. Gmail, or if you must, Hotmail etc. Once sure its clean, then you can think about letting it near your system

Yes, we really are entering the 'netbook' world, even on PC's, Email software is not required any longer
That's the most absurd thing I've heard in a while. Why would you want mail on other servers for people to gain access to and attack your identity? I use a hosted Exchange Server but I always archive my emails on my HD and there isn't much more than a week of data on my .ost. Hard drives are so inexpensive, why would you not want data stored with you, privately?

Outlook connector.

This is just great, and free! E-mails are on the server AND the personal computer.

Edit: Or Windows Live Mail.

Agreed with that but only partially.
I believe he ment that it is more secure to pick up your mail through web servers when you are looking at trojan horses,viruses,spam,etc. because web servers filtrate your mail,but on the other side,there is always possibility that someones stole your password and reads your mail and leave it on the server,and you don't even know that till the moment you do some transaction,change your bank account details or something.
