Windows 7 Battery Issue Being Investigated By Microsoft [news.cnet.com]
Microsoft says it is looking into a problem that is causing some Windows 7 users to get a warning that there is a problem with their battery when, in fact, there is not. "We are investigating this issue in conjunction with our hardware partners, which appears to be related to system firmware," a Microsoft representative said in a statement on Tuesday.

The people complaining are saying that some Windows Vista or Windows XP laptops that were upgraded or migrated to Windows 7 suddenly exhibit poorer-than-usual battery life. Here is yet another example of why you should do a clean install of a new Windows OS and not to upgrade.

Better yet, don't upgrade at all. My philosophy is that any computer I buy will live its life on the OS it started on. About the time I need a new OS is probably about when I'll need a new computer anyways. Why fix what ain't broke?
