The Pains of Upgrading

As fun as it is having a semi-new computer for the first time in six years, I have to say that I’m feeling the “pain of upgrading.”

I’m on my third OS installation in the last 12 hours and have basically made no progress with anything. Finding a Windows 2000 driver for an older modem is not a fun task — and I’m failing miserably at it.

My question is this: has anyone ever actually had a painless OS upgrade (and I’m talking a major upgrade, not an incremental or a service pack)? I’m sure any of the various *nix variants are pretty painless, but how about on a Windows machine? -ram

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
