Hey guys, I've been thinking about upgrading to Windows 7, but I remember reading that you can't jump straight from XP to 7. Has that changed at all? If so, can someone provide some steps for me? Does the Windows 7 upgrade process include and sort of automated backup of files? I read, once again, "somewhere" that your files are put into a folder that you can access after the installation of 7 is complete. And finally, does pirating Windows 7 include any sort of security risks? Does it still include ALL the updates that retail versions get? Thanks guys (and gals)!
