I went from XP to 7, the wife went from XP to Vista, and now has 7. Both are7 Ultimate. But i so agree with the above posts, best to make sure your computer can handle it. I have the OEM and two licenses for both computers. One drawback, the older video codecs will not work with Windows 7 so you may have to find a separate video player for other than the standard avi's or wmv, etc. I do have a 3rd computer with XP, but only because I like the microscope and telelscope that work so well with it.
