If the rumors at TechARP are to be believed it looks like Microsoft might allow for a free upgrade to Windows 7 for some Windows Vista Users.

 

Although this is not a first, MS did the same thing with XP x64 for many XP users and also with Millennium to XP, it will still be welcome news and help to get over some of the media created image problems that MS has over Vista.

 

The details are not completely clear yet but TechARP do have a draft listing of what is being called the Windows 7 Technical Guarantee.
