Question by : What is the difference between Windows 7 “upgrade version” and Windows 7 “full version”?
I guess it sounds like a stupid question as it seems fairly obvious that one is just an upgrade and one is a full version … but how am I supposed to know which one to get? I currently have Windows Vista and I hate it, can’t wait to get rid of it, so I’m planning on getting Windows 7 soon. The upgrade version is a lot cheaper than the full version … which version do I need, and how does it work? How do I transfer all my programs, documents, etc from vista to Windows 7 when I purchase it and install it?

The “upgrade” version requires an existing Windows installation or disc. Since you have Vista, the upgrade would work for you, and you shouldn’t lose any documents or programs. The full version allows you to install on a computer without having a previous Windows installation.
