I'm new to the android OS and came from windows OS. If i flash a rom that doesn't delete "/data" and don't like that rom and I flash a different rom that doesn't delete "/data", will all my apps,settings,data will be intact?

Reason I'm asking is because I don't want to re-install all my apps and set up my settings/configs with each new rom. Thanks.

Be sure to make a backup with Clockwork Recovery before you install a ROM. This is for 2 reasons; 1) incase something goes wrong you can restore from your backup and 2) you can go into the advanced restore menu *after* you have installed a new ROM that required you to wipe /data and just restore the /data portion of your last backup and get all of your apps and contacts back.
