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.

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...


I had the Finder looping in two releases of Mac OS X after fresh installations. They seem to get things right much of the time, but the disasters seem to be bigger when they happen, such as the data loss bugs over the current and previous releases.
