Report: Microsoft to do free Windows 7 upgrades

Gregg Keizer | Jan. 7, 2009
A Malaysian Web site said that Microsoft would unveil a programme for Windows 7 that's similar to Vista Express Upgrade.

Microsoft declined to comment on the TechARP posting. "We often explore options with our partners for how we offer products, but we have nothing to announce at this time," a company spokeswoman said Tuesday.

A public beta of Windows 7 is thought to be imminent -- perhaps as early as tomorrow, after Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer delivers a keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas -- but clues on Microsoft's own Web site seem to point to a release no later than next week .

Leaked copiesof the Windows 7 build thought to be the one pegged for beta distribution have been available on file sharing sites for more than a week.
