Windows 7 Upgrade Option and Microsoft Store

Today, we announced the Windows 7 Upgrade Option and Windows 7 pricing.image Microsoft Store is also participating in this program and offering a free* copy of Windows 7 to qualifying purchases on Microsoft Store of Windows Vista from starting June 26th, 2009.

The Windows 7 team blog summarizes this program as it relates to buying a new PC with Windows Vista:

…you don’t have to wait until GA to get a new Windows PC. In fact, we know many people need that new PC sooner – for back to school specifically. And we have the answer for people who need a new PC now but still want to get Windows 7 and that’s the Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program, which kicks off tomorrow, June 26th! Anyone who buys a PC from a participating OEM or retailer with Windows Vista Home Premium, Business or Ultimate on it will all receive an upgrade to the corresponding version of Windows 7 at little or no cost to customers.

On Microsoft Store, we are offering the Windows 7 Upgrade Option for any purchases of Windows Vista Home Premium, Business and Ultimate starting on June 26, 2009.  On or about October 22, 2009, we will send qualifying customers an email with a promotion code and instructions to get your free copy of Windows 7.  You will have the option to download it for free, or choose to have a packaged copy shipped to you.

If you have any questions, hit me up in the comments or on Twitter.
