No offense to the OP but...this may be a nominee for the greatest troll thread of the year

Yes, I reinstalled from scratch. Reinstalling the applications was not the big deal. I keep a copy of all the installation .exes of anything I ever download on a seperate 2.5" disk. And for things like Office 2007 I have the CD. The big deal was to reinstall all the updates. My recovery partition was more than 2 years old - ergo pre SP1 and they ran me thru a couple of hundred updates for days on end. I did, however, not install SP2 because I think that is what threw the monkey wrenches into my system in the first place.
As far as Windows7 goes, I installed that twice from the purchase RTM disk because I switched my SSDs. And then I installed the applications from my 2.5" disk and the CDs. Fortunately everything is working after some tweaks - e.g. I reinstalled the Vista sidebar. Win7 showered me with relatively few updates because it is new.

That was my first thought when I saw this thread......

Seems to be living up to that, though it has kept pretty nice overall.

I'm still waiting for it to explode!

Indeed...the thread has borderlined at times...but it has remained a clean debate

I consider myself pretty computer savvy and have built and maintained over 150 machines since the early 90's.
The only pre-built machines I have owned were my Commodore Amiga 3000 and various laptops through the years.
After using Vista Ultimate from Jan of this year till August when Win 7 came out and now using 7, I will never go back to XP.
I don't seem to have any issues with 7 at all. Works great on my HTPC, my Main machine, as well as on my Dell Mini 9, in fact Win 7 runs better on the Dell than it did with Windows XP Home.
