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.

On Linux, /home/ is commonly put on its own partition, essentially for that reason. You can do a clean-install for an update, or install a completely different Linux, and have all your user-documents -- and potentially even some of your user settings -- survive the update.
