Craig, I'd highly recommend subscribing to the ever-practical Windows
Secrets newsletter, http://windowssecrets.com/. There's the content-rich
regular version and the very replete paid version, open to those who
donate whatever amount they feel it's worth to them. They've dealt with
Windows 7 from the time it was a twinkle in Microsoft's eye and
extensively since it came out, including the Jan. 26 newsletter "7
Simple Steps for Setting Up Windows 7" and the May 12 "Build a Complete
Windows 7 Safety Net."

No ties -- just a happy customer. It's the only newsletter that I'm
actually willing to pay for :)

I use Win 7 at home and, all in all, like it much better than XP, which
I liked a lot.

I'm going to face the acid test soon. This summer at work we migrate
from XP SP-3 and Office 2003 to Win 7 and Office 2010.

Jim

Craig,

I'm not really aware of any Windows-migration-anxiety lists, though I'm
sure we stand at the ready to help get you through it. 8-)

Some hopeful news: We migrated to Win7 and Office 2007 about a year ago
with very few hiccups that I can recall. All the Word-based manuals and
RoboHelp 8 Help files backed up and restored nicely, and things
generally work as before. I have <ahem>adapted</ahem> to the Word
ribbon, even if it does still frustrate me at times (Best tip I've
received on this score: Ctrl+Shift+S to see the floating Styles dialog).

Hope this helps ease your pain...

Mike McCallister

That's encouraging. Frown.

I'm getting a clean install this week. I'm being backed up Wednesday -
Thursday and I'm getting "upgraded" Thursday - Friday.

I'm HOPING it all goes well, cuz ALL our user guides and manuals are on
my machine in MadCap Flare. Shiver.

I have my executables and my maintenance key, but still......
