I'm thinking about upgrading my Windows OS from XP to Windows 7.

Any thing particular I should consider?

I use Windows on a WMware Fusion partition on my Mac.

You can't upgrade WinXP to Win7, you have to do a clean install for XP->7

I started using Win7 a few months ago and I like it. It is often faster than XP, but your Mac needs at least 4GB of RAM to work properly though.

Thank you Lennart.

I meant doing a clean install. Might take a bit of time but shouldn't be to much trouble with reinstalling programs as I mainly use the partition for memoQ. Also I do have 4GB on my MacBook Pro.
