Painless Migration To Windows 7 For SMBs

PCWorld: Painless Migration To Windows 7 For SMBs

Some of these seven steps are fairly self-evident but others you may not think of – such as backing up all your data.

“Windows 7, Microsoft’s latest PC operating system, has proven popular. A stable, good looking OS with a host of bells and whistles. But if you’re thinking of taking the plunge, there are seven things you should consider before you download and install Windows 7.

1. Decide on a version of Windows 7

While Windows 7 does not have the bewildering range of options that blighted Microsoft Windows Vista, there are still several flavors to choose from, principally Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate. Which version you should plump for will depend on your needs. If you’re a Vista user and the level of functionality you have is sufficient, you’ll generally want to move to the equivalent edition. So, if you have Windows Vista Home Premium, you’d move to Windows 7 Home Premium. Indeed, all but power users and business users will probably find that Home Premium suffices.”
