If you are coming from Windows 7, you keep programs, settings, and files. Coming from Vista you keep settings and files. Come from XP and you only get to keep your files.

I upgraded from Windows 7 as well, and everything was transferred. Before you upgrade, it runs a program that detects which (if any) programs you will have to reinstall after upgrading.
