I already have it installed on my 80GB IDE backup drive but I want to try it more...

All my important data is already backed up in many DVD's so there's no problem about that...

I also have all the necessary drivers to set everything up so

what do you say?

this means that I would have to get rid of vista by now and use only windows 7 build 7000 beta...

so.. what's your opinion?

Yeah, go for it! I've encountered zero stability issues with it.

for me it isn't compatible enough with the stuff i use (GTA IV, Google Chrome, other games) and it will expire... i say dual boot to your heart's content but i don't recommend you use it as a mian os because if you don't have any vista install disk you're going to run into issues
