Is Windows 7 beta your main OS?

After switching around using W7 as a virtual PC, I am now using it as my main operating system. Other than a problem with sleep mode, it works just as well as XP/Vista so I don't see why I should stop using it :D

I don't have any work critical things on this computer (and all my photos are backed up in case the worst should happen).

Are others using it as a main OS too?

I use it a lot, but I wouldn't call it my main OS now - I've got too much data on other machines and I wouldn't want to risk switching things over. I do use it as the main OS on one machine though, and it has done well so far :)

Using it as primary OS in my old 2005 PC and it does its job very fine.

Dual booting with Vista on my main PC, but I find I am using Windows 7 more and more. I don't think I like the new start menu bar very much as I can't find what I am after sometimes... will take some getting used to!

I was using Windows7 32-bit as the only OS on my computer and recently switched to 64-bit. Windows7 works great for me. I have no reason to reinstall Vista.

I'm using W7 7100 as my main operating system running my small business on it (obviously with regular backups just in case) and using it as my entertainment system.....mainly for the Freesat abilities in Media Center and it's working perfectly!

The more I use W7 7000 the less I want to use Vista. As soon as I get hold of the RC, I plan to use it as my main OS.
I still have Vista & XP Pro, I havn't used XP for ages and have had no reason to use Vista other then to get updates.
I have imaged both XP & Vista to a spare drive and emptied another drive for a clean install of W7 RC.
All my hardware and software works on the W7 beta, so I will stay with it.
If I have any major problem, I can restore the Vista image in 15 minutes.

It's your lucky day - the RC is out now ;) If you like the original beta, you'll love the RC!
