    I don't have life saving files and files that hold the fate of the Universe on my computer, however, will the computer/Windows be more stable if I do a clean install? For instance, I do not play many games. However, I could redownload all of my AMV Clips, WoW and stuff. So, like Windows XP was, will a clean install actually make it more stable?

    This isn't the answer everyone wants to here but I highly recommend you do a clean install for exactly the reason you described

    A Clean Install is always better.. If you are going to be playing any Games that require OpenGL, you might want to consider dual booting the OSs (Vista/XP)... remember, this is still beta (if you have it right now), and the final release should be more compatible with legacy stuff.
