How stable is Windows 7?

I am considering doing a full upgrade from Vista Ultimate 64 to Windows 7 64....


I cant create a partition large enough it seems, i would like to dual boot...but cant. (300gb velociraptor)

dont want to format and do a clean install, cause I will lose everything on my PC....


So my other option is to UPGRADE....


opinions?

The new build 7057 should be very stable, compared to the first beta builds.
The 7048 beta build is stable.
I have not tested 7057 yet so cant say for sure?

In terms of being stable Windows 7 is an armoured fighting vehicle and Vista is a cardboard box.

Hello SMOKKINU.


Just keep in mind that these Windows 7 builds WILL expire and that may leave you with no usable OS to use when they do expire, if MS has not released the final 7; I would not do an upgrade to your Vista; a dual boot is the sensible option. Have a look at the video tutorial below.

Current, most stable build of Windows 7, is?
I'm asking as I'm going to install it on my PC. I tried Windows XP Professional 64-bit but it seems it's not entirely compatible with my Core i7 system, and I know Vista is slower than Windows 7, so I'm wondering currently which is the best build of Windows 7 to use. Thanks.
