Windows 7 beckons. For those of you who don't know what that entails, let me just say that I will hopefully be back tomorrow, new OS up and running. Hasta la Vista, baby!
Update: It was as smooth as could be, except for a couple snide comments. The reason I planned a day's absence was because I wanted to do a clean install--format the hard drive, reload everything, using a directory structure and new defaults and all that goes with knowing what you want. So it took a while to get 90 gigs of music reloaded, and all the programs installed and tweaked.
But all in all, Windows 7 installed without a hitch, and looks quite nice. It seems to boot faster than Vista, too!
I'll be back to regular posting presently.
