Nope, just make sure you upgrade to Win7 64. If you upgrade to 32bit, you will have to reinstall just about everything. So stick with 64 bit.

You won't have to reinstall, but things will work better with a fresh install of Win 7 over an upgrade to Win 7.

This is excellent advice. Upgrading weirds operating systems.

I actually just nuked my old Vista system from orbit yesterday, re-partitioned the drive, and installed Win 7. Working great (knock on wood). Of course, I subsist on very few apps (Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice, Gimp and STO), so re-installing was not such a hassle.

if you upgrade from vista home to 7 professional (or ultimate, i think) you have to do a clean install. i went from vista 64 home to 7 64 professional and i had to do a clean install and call microsoft to activate it.

although Win7 gives you the option to install while keeping your Vista files, I highly recommend doing a fresh/complete install rather than upgrading. There always seems to be weird, annoying, and sometimes troublesome issues that pop up with upgrading.
