Vista netbooks bought after July 1st eligible for direct upgrade to Windows 7
In case you buy a netbook ‘puter that’s got Windows Vista already installed on it on or after July 1st of this year, you should know that you will be eligible for a direct upgrade to the newer Microsoft OS, Windows 7, once it’s finally released. The whole Vista to Windows 7 upgrade scheme may have been confusing before, but it won’t be after now. The above mentioned information relating to Vista to Windows 7 upgrades came from a Microsoft issued draft that the guys from over at Tech ARP somehow got their hands on. So, if you were eyeing a new PC with Vista installed on it, you may want to stall buying for now and wait until the upgrade scheme for Windows 7 is finally clear.
