How often, on average, do you reformat your home computer?

Since NT6 came out (Vista), I'd say every year. NT6 has been very good to me.

In the NT5 days, I was reformatting every 6 months, sometimes even more frequently.

Before that, I can't really remember. I don't think I had a computer of my own to format as I saw fit.

Hardware failures or OS upgrades. That's it.

Yeah but you're a Linux guy. I don't think Linux ever gets "dirty".

Never because I'm lazy unless there is a serious issue. It doesn't seem to slow down that bad.

Windows doesn't either, with proper administration

Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

I'm smart with my computer. I don't need to.
