    i never recommend upgrading windows os's. Always do a clean install.

    I triple the recommendation, when it comes to windows installs.

    well, i'd say the same

    but since these are betas/rc and shouldn't be consider'd 100% reliable anwyways, u could go either way


    random note.. woohoo! 1100 posts :D

    I agree... I've had a computer since 1995 and have never done an upgrade. Always clean install period.

    I would generally agree but have pretty much upgraded from every build since the first beta I got and have had no issues other than a few which were easily resolved.

    When I do finally migrate my main rig I will however do a clean install.

    Plus, either upgraded from Vista or XP will really help the MS guys pick up any issues, upgrading from the beta will not really reproduce a real world scenario.

    Yea I will be upgrading to RC, i have always done clean installs, but this seems different to me, just beta and rc, and my files and programs are how I want them. So too much work to reinstall and format and all that.
