Windows 7 Migration Made Easy

Numara Software is hoping to ease the move to Windows 7 with FootPrints Migration Manager. The software moves applications, bookmarks and other custom touches from your old machine to that hot new Windows 7 machine.

The product actually competes with Microsoft's free Windows User State Migration Tool. The Microsoft tool requires some heavy IT lifting -- skill with scripting is needed. Numara's software is 100 percent graphical. The company also claims it can migrate more apps than Microsoft.
