Vista is my main OS, and I use it 90% of the time. There are a few things that don't work (like burning a CD in iTunes...don't ask. No one has ever found the solution. iTunes is just retarded. Uninstall/reinstall...I've tried it all. It just won't burn my darn cds. It starts the burn then cancels it right away and ejects the CD, leaving me with a coaster every darn time. So, I use XP when I need to burn a CD from iTunes).
And, I want to get familiar with W7 so that when the RTM comes out, I know the ins and outs since I run a computer business and will eventually have to deal with it. Plus, from what I've heard, it's pretty darn good.
So there ya have it.
Eventually, I'm sure that I'll move on over to just W7, but initially, I had XP and Vista dual booted because of all of the Vista problems. As they eventually were fixed, I started to use XP almost none of the time. So I'm sure that'll happen with Vista and W7, too.
ATF: Thanks. I'll give it a shot later today!
