Downgrade plan for Windows 7 PCs

Quote:
Anyone buying a PC with Windows 7 pre-installed will be able to swap it for XP or Vista.

Microsoft has confirmed that the licence conditions under which the software will be sold will allow people to downgrade.

The conditions will apply to both businesses that buy licences for Windows in bulk and consumers that get the operating system on a PC or laptop.

No firm date has been given for the release of Windows 7's final version.

Not that I can see. If it is, it should be in news and not another forum. This only got officially posted on the BBC site today anyway...
