Is that OK to install windows 7 beta for home daily use?

Since Windows 7 Beta is releasing soon, I want to install it for home use. Is that ok? By the way, my PC is mainstream this summer.

It is not wise to install it on primary machine.Beta softwares are buggy,so better use it only on secondary or test machine.

Just a comment: I think you mean IE8 (not version 7 that has been published quite some time ago).

Kind regards

No, Windows Beta 7 is the new operating system under development to replace Vista.

It is never suitable to install a beta on your main computer. It isn't even safe to install a brand new, released operating system on a main computer. Try to wait until the major disasters have been discovered and fixed. Six months is not wrong.

Not to mention only people that went to PDC or a few other sources have access to Windows 7 so more often than not it's being downloaded from a Bittorrent site which brings it's own risks.
