Well, got my copy of PCWorld just as soon as I could....25 heart thumping mins later I was hitting the reboot button and fingers crossed watched the screen avidly.

Everything went so smoothely I could hardly believe it....theres gotta be a catch somewhere, maybe it just hasnt come up yet.....but, it looks like I was worried over nothing as everything is going sweetly and my programs seem to be behaving themselves so far......will have to keep a close eye on things for a bit, but basically everythings just fine.

I hope others have the same stress free upgrade as I have just experienced. :^O
