    It's impossible to get a grip on how big this issue might be in terms of numbers, as lots of users happy, but some really appalling problems for some early adopters.

    Here's a resume page of 'issues'

    :doubt:

    Digital river stuffs up dramatically
    Absurdly badly handled publicity/marketing stunts: Family guy :rolleyes: , Launch Parties :rolleyes: ....

    Windows on a MacBook !! on Today Show !! with Ballmer present for interview at W7 launch...!!..wtf

    Just shows you can run MS on Mac..

    MS blames endusers of course...

    Not withstanding the massive complexity involved in the W7 release, not the publicity MS might have hoped for.

    Interesting reflection on how many points of breakdown there are in any complex process and how 'micro' doesn't always translate to 'macro' easily.

    Next www hot press release: "Ubuntu download servers in melt down"
    ? tomorrow isnt it. ;)
    No scale comparison, but will be interesting how the comparison goes, neh?

    My upgrades from XP to 7 and from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium occurred without incident.

    I did an in-place upgrade from Vista to W7 a day after it was released and no problems whatsoever. Up and running in no time with everything preserved as it was on Vista. So I'm one of the happy ones!
