Rumours regarding Windows 7 upgrade from Vista

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

So unless your head has been under the sand lately, you’ve probably heard the latest rumours. The rumours are that Microsoft is considering providing a Windows 7 upgrade to recent Windows Vista buyers for free or for a substantially low upgrade price.

There is a post out there on a site called Tech ARP that lists a timeline for rollout of Windows 7. The question is if this is legitimate or not?

Regardless if it is, I think it’s a great idea for Microsoft to offer Windows 7 as a free upgrade or at least as a low cost upgrade to it’s current Windows Vista user base. This would go a long way to gaining trust and support from a user base that feels that Microsoft has largely given them the shaft.
