Here how that works. Say I bought the client + office software 2 years ago. With our contract, I think we pay an annual fee to maintain that license. That fee is very small, around $10/seat. When Win 7 is released, we can just downoad it and start using it, no additional cost. We are paying for a client seat, not a particular OS. That maintenance fee also goes towards enterprise support, it's just part of our IT budget and a fairly fixed cost. We have a separate hardware deal with HP, where we get desktops. laptops and servers with fixed life cycles and repair allowances.
