The Long Road to Windows 7

Did you know it could take more than 20 hours to migrate to Windows 7?

Who's making this outrageous claim? Apple? The Linux community? No. It's Microsoft itself. Well, I'll be darned.

While most Windows 7 upgrades take one to six hours, you super users out there better be warned. As our story points out, "The longest install involved a super user (650GB of data, 40 apps installed) running mid-level hardware. That upgrade, for a 32-bit version, took 20 hours, 15 minutes."

Are you a super user? Have you found tricks to ease the migration to new operating systems? If so, shoot your secrets to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
