Windows 7 upgrade program nears launch

Windows 7 logoIf you are thinking of buying a Windows Vista PC in the next day or so, you might want to hold off just a bit longer.

Microsoft has said that it will have a program whereby Vista PC buyers will be able to get a free copy of Windows 7, but only if they purchase after a certain date. Well, that date would appear to be June 26.

That is the date pointed to by enthusiast site TechARP and in a leaked Best Buy memo we reported on earlier this month. The Best Buy memo also mentioned a pre-order program that will run from June 26 through July 11, offering Windows 7 Home Premium upgrades for $49 and Windows 7 Professional upgrades for $99.

It's also a date mentioned on this Microsoft Web site, uncovered by posters at Neowin.

Microsoft has confirmed it will have such a program, but has not detailed it as yet.

As in the past, the exact offer will vary by PC maker, but in general users get a free or minimal-cost upgrade once the new operating system is released. Windows 7 is slated to hit store shelves on October 22.
