Is a Windows Vista to 7 Upgrade like a clean install?

Is a Windows Vista to 7 Upgrade like a clean install? What I mean is, if I do an in-place upgrade, will it act like a clean installation of Windows 7 with all my programs, docs, etc? Or will it still have junk info/data left-over from Vista?

If you upgrade to Windows 7, it will typically do an in place upgrade and keep all documents and programs installed where you left them and just upgrade the version of Windows.

"No, it can't.
I was using XP and have upgraded to 7 recently.
It should be clean install right? But my documents and program files are still there in C:\Windows.old
You have to delete that folder manually."
