Is my PC ready for Windows 7 ?

Microsoft did a good job this time, they created a software called “Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor”. This is a great software and provides a detailed software/hardware review of your machine.
This review includes
  • Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit compatibility report for hardware and software.
  • Does your System meets the minimal requirements for Windows 7.
  • Depending on your OS if you can upgrade or need clean install of Windows 7.
  • Which of your existing software will not port to windows 7.

Most of you will be pretty comfortable moving to Windows 7 32 bit, but if you are planning to move to 64 bit version. I recommend going thru this guide : http://abhinav.tgerm.com/2010/10/are-you-windows-7-64-bit-ready.html
