Windows Microsoft has confirmed that an upgrade license for Windows 7 from Windows XP will be available, but there is a catch: users will have to wipe their hard drive and perform a clean install - so technically, it's not an upgrade. Still, the upgrade license will probably be cheaper than the full license, so it might just be worth it.

The only thing kicking Microsoft's arse, is Microsoft.

Well... that and people whining about Vista in completely false and outdated ways. Yes, in late betas Longhorn/Vista was awful; yes when it first came out driver support was patchy at best, but c'mon! We're 2 years down the track and Vista is really a solid and good OS now.

That said, 7 looks like it will be better.
