I think I can finally say that I have finished the upgrade, Free Cell is installed ;). This summer I installed Windows 7 RC and was pleased with the performance and the look and feel on my 3 year old laptop. It would have been nice if I could have just upgraded the RC version but I was going the Professional version rather than to the Ultimate version. Since I had previous partitioned my disk and cleaned up the disk space I was in pretty good shape for a clean install. The hardest part of the install was install the device drivers for the old QMS printer and Epson scanner. Support for these devices was not included in Windows 7 so I had to install the old XP drivers using the XP compatibility mode.
