Windows 7 Salesmanship Starts Early

How's this for a deal? Buy one Vista PC and get Windows 7 free? If you've read the news about Windows 7, it probably sounds pretty sweet. Windows 7, which I started using three short days ago (more on this in Wednesday's newsletter) is every bit as good as many of you Redmond Report readers told me it was. Easy, fast, kinda slick. I like it.

This kind of incentive is just what the market needs to start moving some boxes. And with the Windows 7 Release Candidate as stable as it is, you could be upgrading in no time!

Any Windows 7 haters out there? You may be a minority, but your voice can always be heard at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
