  2. Nothing new. Yes, there's an upgrade path. It still requires a clean
    install.

  3. Huh, does it save your settings and stuff? Is it like a repair upgrade>

    Nope. The only thing you get from "upgrading" is a cheaper Windows Vista
    license. You still have to do a clean install to use it.

    If I'm reading that chart correctly, the upgrade to Vista Business x64 is
    free. Do you read it that way as well?

  6. Use WET (Windows Easy Transfer) to save your settings. It works pretty
    well - I've been using it build to build here, on 64bit, and it's not bad.

  7. Its free through Express Upgrade if you purchase within the Technology
    Upgrade program. But in the case of Upgrade to Vista x64 from XP Pro x64, I
    thought it was a physical upgrade, but it seems to just be qualifying
    upgrade media for the upgrade pricing.
