Like you, on a very boring day I downloaded the RC of Win7 and installed
it on a separate HD from WinXP on the same PC. Curiosity was the main
reason for doing this. I bypassed all the **** in-between Win95 and
WinXP. WinXP being a very good workhorse I bypassed all the ****
between it and Win7. My Win7 RC has expired and it now says Illegal
Copy on the screen, but it still works. Win7 has a lot of bells and
whistles that I like, but for now WinXP is doing what I need and doing
it very well. As fast as MS turns out new OS I figure I will probably
be with WinXP for a few more RCs from MS. Having the latest OS is not a
life time achievement, it is just filling a never ending void in your
well-being, kind of like buying a new car every year that is nothing
more than a means of transportation. Good Luck.
