Since Microsoft is not being very nice to XP users, I decided to check on some issues a person can have when migrating from dear old XP onto the shiny 7 OS.
This is what I discovered:
1. Remember that you must run a clean install, which means that your HD has to be erased. Some people are saying that this lack of upgrading compatibility is Microsoft's revenge on you for rejecting Vista.
2. Under 7, some users have reported problems with XP compatibility mode. This means that some of your programs might crash.
3. Make sure you can locate ALL of your drivers for Windows 7. So get ready for a good driver hunt...
4. If you have a laptop, CONSIDER THE BATTERY ISSUE.
Regarding #4, I even read there a post of a person instructing users on how to check the status of the battery first... using UBUNTU LINUX!
Can MS go any lower??
