Anyone tried it? Heard of anyone who has used it?

Windows Easy Transfer Companion enables you to automatically transfer your most important
programs from your Windows XP-based PC to your new Windows Vista-based PC. The software will
move more than 100 of the most popular programs, as well as many others that you may have
installed. You have complete control over selecting which programs to transfer, so only the
programs you care about will move. The software will alert you if some programs may not be able
to transfer, or may not transfer with high confidence. Most security software is not able to
transfer due to technical reasons.
Easy Transfer Companion is designed to be used in addition to Windows Easy Transfer-which is
part of Windows Vista and automatically transfers your data and settings. Connecting your two
computers can be done with either an Easy Transfer Cable (available online, from retailers, and
from PC manufacturers), or a home or small business network. If using an Easy Transfer Cable,
you must first install Windows Easy Transfer on your Windows XP-based PC. By using Easy
Transfer and Easy Transfer Companion you will be able to quickly and easily setup your new PC
with all the data, settings, and programs that matter to you, so you can be productive on your
new PC right away.
Easy Transfer Companion only transfers programs from a Windows XP-based PC to a Windows
Vista-based PC. Easy Transfer Companion is currently in Beta, and only available for the US
