Thanks for posting those links.

What I do for my own computers is that I always have two or more partitions around so I can migrate from one major OS version to the next smoothly. It goes something like this:

- When first getting a new computer, I split the disk into two partitions.
- I install the current major OS Version on one partition, and use that for my main working drive.
- I also install the previous major OS version on the other partition. (I always need it for testing).
- When the next major OS release comes along, I archive the older OS version and do a fresh install of the new one on the same partition.
- Over time (usually several weeks) I slowly move various software tasks to the new partition.

That arrangement allows me to move back and forth as necessary based on software compatibility, etc.

Cheers,
Jim
