To encourage consumers to keep buying Windows Vista PCs this year despite Windows 7 's looming release, Microsoft will give away free Windows 7 upgrades to people buying PCs with Windows Vista until as late as January 31 of next year, according to a report.
The report, from the Malaysian blog TechARP.com, which has called similar details correctly in the past, is another clue that Microsoft plans to release Windows 7 before year's end, said Matt Rosoff , an analyst with the independent research firm Directions on Microsoft.
Citing purported confidential memos from Microsoft, TechARP.com had earlier reported that the Windows 7 Upgrade Program will begin July 1 of this year.
That would mean that any Vista PCs purchased between then and January 31, 2010 are eligible for free upgrades to Windows 7.
