Windows 7 Upgrades Upgraded

When I first read of glitches with Windows 7 upgrades, I downplayed it, thinking a tiny majority were making a big deal out of their problems while most everyone else did just fine.

You, the loyal Redmond Report reader, set me straight. My mailbag is full of both success and horror stories. If you haven't upgraded yet or want to compare your experience to those of your peers, check out the letters here and here.

The good news is that at least one of these problems has been fixed. With a new "Fix It," Windows 7 should no longer hang during the upgrade (a problem that apparently only occurs when moving from Vista).

We have a ton of letters about Windows 7 upgrades, but could always use more. Feel free to weigh in at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
