should I dualboot?
 
Right now I'm dualbooting Vista and XP (both 32)
When Windows 7 comes out, should I do a full system restore, and have Windows 7, or should I dualboot 7 and Vista or 7 and XP. The only reason I had XP was so I could play some games that didn't work with Vista like Far Cry 1 (I got a blue/white colors when I played it). No other reason other than that. So what would you do?

Ditch both and go full Win 7. I haven't seen a game that 7 couldn't play, not counting ones even Win 2K has problems with.

No reason to keep vista, win7 handles all. Still might need xp for some things. Waiting to see win7 xp mode.

With windows 7, there really is no reason to keep vista. I don't think vista can run anything that 7 can't.

As for what to do with XP, I used to dual boot xp 32 and vista 64. After installing win 7 64 it only took me about 5 days to realize that I really didn't see any need to keep XP either, so I reformatted that partition shortly afterwards. Windows 7 is really really polished.

I would expect that dualbooting Win 7 and either Vista or XP would work like dualbooting Vista and XP. You lose all system restore points from the alternate OS when you boot into the other. That's a downside for me.

No need to dual-boot.
