Microsoft introduces Windows 7 Upgrade Option programme
Microsoft is announcing the official start of the Windows 7 Upgrade Option Programme, so customers won’t have to wait until October to buy a new PC, if they want Windows 7.

Following the positive response to the Windows 7 Beta and Release Candidate trial users, Microsoft recognised that many consumers would like to buy a Windows 7-powered PC for school, home or work now, ahead of the Window 7 general availability launch on 22 October 2009.

On 22nd October Windows 7 will be available in the following 14 languages: English, Spanish, Japanese, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Chinese (Hong Kong).

Then on 31st October the remaining 21 languages will become available: Turkish, Czech, Portuguese, Hungarian, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Greek, Ukrainian, Romanian, Arabic, Lithuanian, Bulgarian, Estonian, Slovenian, Hebrew, Thai, Croatian, Serbian Latin, and Latvian.

As a result anyone who buys a PC from a participating manufacturer or retailer, and which runs Windows Vista Home Premium, Business or Ultimate, will receive an upgrade to Windows 7 at little or no cost. The upgrade offer will vary by PC manufacturer and retailer (a small fee for shipping and handling may be charged) - consumers should check with these parties for specific details.

For more information customers can visit the upgrade website the company is setting up or in New Zealand call 0800 800 004.

The New Zealand pricing of Windows 7 is yet to be confirmed.
