RE: ASM of any significant value when switching to Direct NFS / NetApp / non-RAC?

I have had to perform a couple of Windows 7 upgrades/new installs. The problems I have encountered have not really been true Windows 7 issues but rather issues with my employer's software configuration and encryption requirements. I do hate the fact that Windows 7 does not support a true upgrade but rather you install Windows 7 then have to re-install all your software. What other OS makes you do this?

Actually, not a bad point at all!
It sounds incredible but nowadays Oracle looks more and more like a second incarnation of CA...

Tell me about it! Just spent this week doing mostly nothing but recovering my normal desktop environment at work!
 From the smouldering remains of a "forced" Windows 7 upgrade.

I just told the Wintel boyzz the next upgrade they force me to take, I'll do it myself and it'll be to Linux: I'm 200% sure it'll create less havoc!

Who is the imbecile at M$ responsible for Win7 destroying the registry? And apparently with Win8, NTFS goes as well and needs a reformat. Like hell I'll ever install that one, mr M$!
