I feel your pain, and I am commenting at the highest level to catch all of the comments. What I have done and am continuing to do is migrate to virtual machines. Like others have commented, saying something like re-installing indicates they might not understand the pain. Every-time I replace my laptop, it's damn near a week before it's got all of the s/w I use. And I never get rid of the previous one for at least a year.

But with SSDs and higher end processors, move it to a vm... then it's just copy/paste.
