I'd like to try Window7, but I'm not an expert so hope someone can help me :)

Have some question:

1) can i have window7 for free?
2) can I use the RECOVERY partition or create a new one to save basic programs I have and then install window7
3) is there any link that explain how to make this two operations or can you give me an help doing this?

Thanks for your attention

Can i have window7 for free?

- No. At least there's no legal way. Discussing Illegal ways are forbidden at this forum.
Legally you can buy Windows 7 from Microsoft partners as a full retail version or as an upgrade.
Purchase Windows 7 Upgrades and Featured Accessories


Legally you can evaluate Windows 7 Enterprise 90-day Trial

can I use the RECOVERY partition or create a new one to save basic programs I have and then install window7

- You can free up disk space on C, then shrink C partition, and from the new unallocated space you can create a new partition (you want 40 Gb or more) to install windows on.
