    I'm going for it on my primary computer.

    I will do a clean install -- but you have to upgrade first. Yes, you have to install twice if you want it clean.

    Since I keep most of my files in the cloud, I don't have much to backup. Maybe some game save files or stuff like that.
    At any rate, it will take two steps to assure I don't lose any data.

    1. Image my entire drive to a backup HDD. Once you've done this, you can browse the entire image in case you need anything from it.

    2. I'll run Belarc Advisor. It's a simple utility which details the configuration of your computer so, for example, you can go back and look at what type of wifi/graphics/other card do I have or what programs did I have installed. Good info that you don't know you might want...until you need it.

    Update: Just got an error but looks like it's because of server load. Trying again (it didn't lose the partial download).
    Update: Oh boy...it's working.

    Cool!
    My disk image is going to take a while (should have run it overnight), so I'll be a little behind you.

    @Nemo The tray icon didn't tell me it was ready for download but when I did a normal "Windows update" from the control panel, it said it was there.
    I'm downloading now.
