I have had to perform a couple of Windows 7 upgrades/new installs.  The 
problems I have encountered have not really been true Windows 7 issues but 
rather issues with my employer's software configuration and encryption 
requirements.  I do hate the fact that Windows 7 does not support a true 
upgrade but rather you install Windows 7 then have to re-install all your 
software.  What other OS makes you do this?

Actually, not a bad point at all!
It sounds incredible but nowadays Oracle looks more and more like a second 
incarnation of CA...

Tell me about it!  Just spent this week doing mostly nothing but recovering my 
normal desktop environment at work!
 From the smouldering remains of a "forced" Windows 7 upgrade.

I just told the Wintel boyzz the next upgrade they force me to take, I'll do it 
myself and it'll be to Linux: I'm 200% sure it'll create less havoc!

Who is the imbecile at M$ responsible for Win7 destroying the registry?  And 
apparently with Win8, NTFS goes as well and needs a reformat.  Like hell I'll 
ever install that one, mr M$!
