What you can do is create a separate partition for your files and OS so you can at least try and see for yourself. As for my personal experience, it is ok. My son is currently using it and see if it will BSOD with all the crap he is doing. So far it is running great.

Like Charlie said. I personally use imgburn, free software. Burning an ISO is the easiest thing on it.

Eh, I use Burnatonce. I find it even easier. You just mount the image, pop in the disc, and click the button. Done.

Betas are put out for a reason.

To have it tested by those that will use it and abuse it.

These programs are never to be trusted as a primary os.

This is stressed on the windows 7 site! :rtfm:

Please heed their warning.

Least you get very pissed off with a crashed system and lost data.

Hey since a bunch of you are using/have used win 7, may I ask what anti virus you have that works on it? Just wondering cause I am starting to test it on a couple stand alone machines at work but was having issues with our endpoint 11 not working right.

Oh and as for burning I usually use ultraISO, but as for free ISO recorder works well.
