    With four versions, how do upgrades work from XP Pro and XP Home? Microsoft has kindly produced a chart to sort everything out.

    In short, users of XP Home can do an upgrade install to any of the four Vista versions. However, XP Pro users can only perform upgrade installs to Business or Ultimate. Windows 2000 and Windows XP Pro x64 users can do no upgrade installs at all, and must perform clean installs (either on a fresh hard drive or an empty hard drive partition) for any Vista version.

    I've danced to this song long enough to be partial to the clean installs. :cool:
