Windows 7: Should I not be here?

Should I not be here?

I found seven forums awhile ago when I was searching the web trying to figure out how to repair a problem with a PC someone gave me. I would come here and read from time to time and was captivated by Jacees amazingness. It wasn't until yesterday that I finally decided to officially join the forum and start a thread of my own. After getting a reply from Jacee I was really excited to do what she told me and I did so as soon as I could get to it. Afterward, I replied letting her know I did what she asked and would not do anything else until she told me what to do. In the meantime I started really browsing the forum since I had never done that before in the past (I usually only read the threads I was directed to from the links I found searching the web for my PC issues.)

So last night I find at the bottom of the home page of the forum that there are more forums: Vista forums, 8 forums, ad 10 forums... I never knew this. I haven't noticed a link to any of those forums before when searching online for answers to my PC problems, only this forum. Now that I've signed up here and made an account I don't want leave. Plus, my PC super hero (Jacee) is here, but I don't run widows 7.. I run the fail windows 7 version AKA windows Vista.

Does this mean I have to post my problems in the Vista forums and not here? I don't want to go there, but I also don't wat to be the jerk posting in the wrong forum. Can I post my vista problems in this forum or do I have to do the walk of shame to the Vista forum? I don't know if I can join there, it's bad enough I run Vista, I don't want to be reminded of it every time I log in to my cool new forum hang out. What do you folks think?

If John (z3r) says its okay it's okay.

If you would like to try and upgrade from Vista there are ways this can be done, check out the extensive Tutorial Index. One that comes to mind is: How to Do an Inplace Upgrade Installation from Vista to Windows 7

Don't forget to check the related tutorials at the bottom of each tutorial.

Awesome!!!! I see I got the okay from z3r010 and that has me pretty happy. On the other hand I am even more excited to see the information that was provided for me here. If I end up getting to upgrade this machine to windows 7 I'll be beyond happy.. I too think windows 7 OS is the best.

You guys just made my day (my wife is going to hate you) because now I get to read tutorials and geek on this PC.





EDIT:

In my excitement I forgot to say thank you very much for the warm welcomes and suggestions. I'm really happy I decided to finally interact here, I feel invincible with a support group like this on my side.

Very true, she loves to stream and go to all the sites that will keep me busy cleaning up her computer for a lifetime. Which reminds me, I'm supposed to run some scans on her pc and help it out today. Tutorials will have to wait for a brief minute.. a very brief minute.
