But I understand your concern. I have heard there were people regularly reinstalling Windows. I prefer to install it and use it till new OS comes out

And about backups - you have to make (preferably daily) backups of your data, which are usually much more valuable. I see no reason for OS to be excluded from this backup, as it is like 2% of total backup volume.
