Windows 7: Windows 7 Upgrade question

04 Oct 2009   #11

XP, Seven, 2008R2
 
 

Would you consider that a mistake for someone at Microsoft to include 2000 as a qualifier and later remove it?

Or is it a conspiracy lol

Maybe they just changed their minds and wanted to close the upgrade loophole that is Win2K.

Well, whether it was planned to boost sales or just corporate oversight that was fixed very late in the game, MS did make good on my purchase of Windows 7 to upgrade for/from W2K. They have issued me 2 keys for the "full" version to replace my purchased upgrade copies.

Full details are here:

STILL confused about "Upgrade" installation process.


Makes me a satisfied customer.
