Windows 7 is officially out which means it's time to think about upgrading. Unfortunately upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 is made difficult by that fact that, by default, Microsoft has not provided a way to do an in place upgrade. Normally this would mean that you would need to wipe your hard drive clean and start from scratch but a program called PCMover from LapLink makes upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 as easy as any other upgrade.
This October Windows 7 will be released to the public and unlike past upgrades most users, including those who are using Windows XP, won't be able to upgrade to Windows 7 without backing up data to an external hard drive and reformatting their computer. For novice computer users this can be a tricky process but thanks to PCmover, upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 is simple.
