I'm probably going to go ahead and try to upgrade my 4-year old Acer laptop to Windows 7, but if that doesn't pan out I might try a clean reinstall of Vista (crazy I know, I don't even have a disk for it). I've also looked at Linux but it seems to work better for servers than for desktops, so I'm not going to use it often if I get it. I liked using Vista SP2 with the except of getting malware and having the Update and Backup functions disabled. I have the understanding that 7 is what Vista should
have been when it first came out.
I've dl'ed the Windows 7 Upgrade advisor from Microsoft's site and aside from the obvious need to upgrade my memory or get another computer entirely, it says that it's fine to go ahead. I need to know what exactly I need to do get 7 to run smoothly on my current laptop with my current applications and other little things that I need know about this OS. I've been kind of out of the Windows OS loop, which is unusual for me since I've using Windows and PCs forever.
Thanks for your help.
