Upgrading from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7: Ripoff

I read the back of the box of the Window 7 upgrade. It said I will only need to do a "clean install" if I have XP. No where did it mention I need to do a clean install if I have Vista Ultimate and buy 7 Professional. That borders on fraud. Do mean to tell me, my options are to spend hours re-installing things or to go spend another $200, plus waste time in transit, etc. Are you kidding me? You get me a refund. Change this. Or I am going to assault Mossberg for not pointing this out and every other tech journalist. Then I am going to set up a website about this. This is outrageous.
