Migrating to Windows 7 from XP or Vista

The final version of the new Microsoft Windows 7 OS was released to manufacturers on July 22 and will ship or be sold to end users on Thursday, October 22, 2009. Migration strategies, issues, and experiences can be shared here on this board, but there are 2 other established SI boards where they can also be discussed and where experienced Beta Tasters of the Win 7 Release Candidate and others making the migration can answer questions:

Windows 7

Subject 57709

Computer Learning

Subject 22366

Hosted by 'thecow' who was an early participant on the Windows 7 board, the popular Computer Learning board is an invaluable resource, and most likely Windows 7 migration issues will be discussed there. I'm in the process of preparing for the migration and this board potentially is a supplement to those established boards.

The official Microsoft Windows 7 website is here ...
