From your Windows 7 installation DVD, you can select to do a custom install and delete all partitions listed to wipe it all out and start fresh again. This can help show you more on this to.

Windows 7 RC (7100)

I'd say go for it, use Windows 7 as your main OS now. I'd do it myself however since I share this computer with my Brother there are somethings he wouldn't enjoy about W7 as of now.

Windows 7 Professional x64

I have this bad habit of keeping any OS I have paid to get. I dual boot XP / W7 on one machine and Vista / W7 on another. I hate to just delete the OS. Especially when they don't come with install disks.

However Windows 7 is all I ever use on a 150GB partition. Sad when I could be using a 500GB day I will just switch completely to W7.

@Home/Work: Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64

I've joined to the club too. I'm using Windows 7 on my main machine at home, my notebook and the PC I use at work. All of those 3 machines with different configurations of hardware and it runs without problems.
I had just a few issues with the game Fallout 3 and an old version of SUPER converter (it was SUPER 2007) that I've fixed updating to SUPER 2009.
All the rest of the software, including the software that you mentioned before, runs perfectly and much better than Vista or XP.
Highly recommended.

Win7 Ultimate x64 on Desktop / Win7 Ultimate x86 on laptop / Win7 x86 Starter on Netbook

The answer is, how good would it be!

It is excellent as a main OS. I have been using Win 7 as my main OS since 3 builds back.
