So guys, this is purely out of curiosity, i am wondering how many people will upgrade from another Windows operating to 7?
I am thinking of upgrading from my current Vista HP 32-bit, to 7 HP 64-bit, but i am still wondering weather it will really be worth it!?!? :?
Anyway give us your vote and feel free to comment!

Vista to seven.

Also, if you didn't make use of the promotional offer, you can get an OEM version from vendors like newegg for about 110 dollars less. You'll lose the right to windows support and you'll have to order at least one other PC component (say a 5$ USB stick), but that still makes it a great deal :)

Yep, Vista to 7 here too on the main office machine, and probably XP to 7 on my media PC.
