Windows Easy Transfer for Windows XP and Windows 2000

Isn't this software for XP and 2000 pcs kinda pointless?

If it is used to transfer settings/files to a vista based pc and already come installed on a vista based pc then why is it nededed to be installed on any other OS based pc? Its kind of pointless isn't it?

Surely it would also need to be on the PC with the legacy OS that you're transferring everything from... I think this is the point of this program. Does make sense really!

One of the nice side-effects of getting a new OS is being presented with the opportunity to get rid of all the crud that you've been accumulating on your old system for years. I don't see the point of any utility that lets me migrate what ideally I should be trying to get rid of.

Transferring photos and music? That's a drag-and-drop operation.
