In my investigations into the possibility of moving to W7, I looked into
a program I had used previously to migrate my applications to a new
laptop. Laplink's PCmover provides a way of installing W7 and of moving
all your current applications - Office, Dreamweaver, etc., plus email
and your desktop setup - to the new install whether it's on the same
machine or a new one. It saves a LOT of time not having to reinstall
everything! PCmover can also be used to upgrade your existing PC from
Windows XP to Windows 7.

And the article I read said that it was Vista users who were getting
into a never-ending reboot cycle during upgrade to W7.

Full disclosure: I am not affiliated at all with Laplink, and have not
used it to move to W7 yet. But if I do upgrade, I'll use it. It worked
flawlessly when I moved all my apps and data from an old computer to a
newer one.

My 2¢,

John G
