Might just be me but the additional notes look a little misleading. To upgrade from Windows XP you just do a custom install, but to go from something earlier than XP you need to buy the full version?

Thought I had been reading you can't use and upgrade disc to go up from XP, thought you had to have Vista

wow, simple!

Unlike Mac OS x where it asks me to either upgrade or archive and install ... so frustrating :)

Doesn't seem all that complicated to me...but is best ignored in any case. Just take out all the green and print "CUSTOM INSTALL IN ALL CASES!"

Done.

why we need computer geeks and advanced techs these days. All the conditions that need to be 'in-place' for an upgrade to take place? No simplification anywhere!

Not trying to draw any parralells, other than the simple fact that they are both kinda complex.

If you still have XP, and a machine with loads of RAM, now is the time to upgrade to 64-bit. I'm upgrading my Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
