    I was reading techharp, and it looks like there could be a possible Windows 7 upgrade in the works for Vista' users. I did not post this on the front page because of the Rumor status.

    Last rumor mill report I read said the leaked migration proposal to the OEM's specifically excluded XP-7 upgrades. The two lowest cost versions of VISTA would also be excluded from upgrades to 7.

    I am with some other people who feel that the upgrade should be free. But it is M$'s choice how they want to do it.

    Hopefully upgrading it won't break it like in past. I would still recommend to never upgrade a windows os. Always do a clean install.
