Vista Buyers Get Free Windows 7
Microsoft is offering Vista Ultimate users a free upgrade to receive Windows 7.
"I'd like to see a free upgrade [to Windows 7] for Vista Ultimate users," said Michael Cherry, an analyst with Directions on Microsoft. "It would buy them a lot of good will, and I don't think it would cost them much."
Cherry cited Microsoft's failure to deliver on the promise of "Ultimate Extras" as his reason for urging the company to compensate users.
There have been users who quickly took Microsoft to task for too few add-ons and a too-slow release pace of Vista Ultimate. Those fans definitely deserve some compensation.
Only thing is, how do we know that Windows 7 won't be a resource hog and have bugs?
The price for Windows 7 has not been set just yet, but you can be sure it will be high.
