Upgrading, Vista to Windows 7 is it best upgrade or complete new install?

Is upgrading from Vista to Win7 recommended or just wipe the drive and do a fresh install of win 7?

    A clean install is always the best.

    If it was Vista on bare metal, then straight to upgrade, with no crapware, and fully supported out of the box hardware on both OS's, then may be.

    In a real system that's been running a bit, the 'erm saving in effort will be completely cancelled out the first time something funny happens.
    Which is a when not an if isn't it?

    After the time you've spent with Vista, I recommend a vacation in the islands and then, when Google finally releases a solid version of Chrome OS on a good laptop, come home and start over. If you haven't budgeted that much, a clean install is always best.
