Free update to Windows 7 for Vista buyers after July 1st, 2009


Good news: if you're forced to buy a Windows Vista computer in the later half of the year, Microsoft will upgrade you for free to Windows 7, with versions syncing up (Home Premium to Home Premium, etc.) Bad news: it's optional to OEMs, so not everyone will be participating. And while it's a pipe dream, there's still sort of the resentful residue of a feeling that given Vista's epic crumminess, Microsoft should be upgrading everyone to 7 for free anyway.
