Get Your Windows 7 Here

Microsoft let its Windows 7 upgrade pricing out of the bag, and instead of being excited, I'm confused.

Even though the news is only about upgrading from one version of Windows 7 to another, there are myriad versions and multiple pricing plans. Even more confusing, some options may only be available for a limited time. Add in temporary free upgrades for new Vista buyers, as well as other Windows 7 options, and what should be simple is more abstruse than a Visa credit card agreement.

And I'm not sure how many consumers will suddenly realize they didn't buy an expensive-enough version of Windows 7.

Have you absorbed this pricing info? How will you upgrade? Plans and vexations equally welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
