Windows Users remained stymied today by endless reboots after trying to upgrade their PCs to Windows 7, according to messages posted on Microsoft's support forum. An answer has yet to be found for all users, who began reporting the problem last Friday after watching the upgrade stall two-thirds of the way through the process.

Well, people never learn and usually ignore history. There's a reason for clean installs in Windows are better than upgrade.

Not just Windows, really - some Linux distros allow you to upgrade one major version to the next, but a clean install usually ends up hurting less. From all accounts, Apple seem to get things right - not sure what they do differently...
