MS Releases Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor BETA


the Redmond software company has published a beta of the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, as they reported on their blog.


The Upgrade Advisor analyzes your system hardware, showing areas that are fine and dandy, and informing you of others that could be troublesome when it comes time to upgrade to the final version of Windows 7. In addition to this, it can detect any USB devices you may have (like printers or cameras) and tell if they will work fine, or if not, the course of action to take when the need to use them arises.
