Oh I have a question, How do you open up this window to view the install date instead of using Command Prompt.

Good god this has to be the longest I have had the same Windows Install for. Usually I had to re-install every 6 months o.o.

Windows 7 is so stable the only reason I reinstalled was because my primary drive failed. And that was the same time the Consumer preview came out so I jumped on the 8 train. But the notion of having to reinstall Windows yearly went out the door with Windows 7.

Where's the option for 6-12 months, lol? Last re-install 1/14/2012, still pretty snappy on my aging i7 920. Is it four years old now? Man, time flies...

You never need to reinstall Windows 8 it is a superior OS with built in functions to factory reset it, or restore system files without effecting any of your programs, its simply the best OS ever created!

I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64 a short time ago.

Pity the choices in the poll start at 1 month, so I cannot vote.

I *think* I reinstalled in May 2011. It's been over a year. I'll probably reinstall when I upgrade to an SSD sometime this year.

I installed once when I built the system about a year ago.. haven't reinstalled yet.. no plans too.
Fileserver is going on 2 years.
Laptop went on 3 years, but was wiped to put Win8 Beta's on it.. which in retrospect was a real waste lol

Pretty much 12-13 months ago, when my new iMac became my new main system, hence moving over Windows for gaming and some applications. :)

Windows Server 2008: 14/04/2010 03:56:07PM PST

No plans to install Windows 8
EDIT: Or upgrade the server, 2008 suits my needs, can't justify purchasing a new license for 2012.

When I first brought this HP laptop, I was surprised to see HP had included an "Clean" install of Windows within the recovery menu. including only the drivers and essential software for trackpad, keyboard controls, and HP support adviser. None of those Norton360 trials, eBay shortcuts, nothing! Really good to see that.
