Actually, I'm considering installing W7 over XP and have discovered there is no direct upgrade path but rather a fresh install is required which means re-installing all programs. I was wondering if it is possible to install Vista first to avoid this. Any suggestions?

If you stick with 32-bit, yes. If you want to go 64-bit then a clean install is the only way to do it.

It's always something isn't it? You just can't get there from here.
