Update and Cross Fingers

My primary home machine has been running Vista Ultimate since I built it. The Vista updating process has been getting uglier and uglier for months now and takes a long time to load anything that comes down from Windows Update.

I decided it was time to bite the bullet yesterday and pulled the upgrade copy of Windows 7 Ultimate off the shelf to update the machine. It took a while, but it installed.

Then it pulled 83 updates. Now it's pulling down Windows 7 SP1.

So far, so good.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed. (And it's damnably hard to type this way...)
