Microsoft to make Vista easily upgradeable
Posted 07 March 2006 - 02:24 AM
In the past, such upgrades would have required users to go to a store to get a physical disc to update their machine. With Vista, which is due to go on sale later this year, Microsoft is adding a second option. Dubbed Windows Anytime Upgrade, the new mechanism will let customers buy the update online. New PCs that come with Vista will come with a Windows Automatic Upgrade DVD, which can be used with a later update that is purchased online.
"If you want more features in Windows Vista, you can upgrade to another version," Microsoft said in help notes that accompany the most recent test version of Windows. "You can either buy a separate upgrade disc at a retail store or use Windows Anytime Upgrade to buy the upgrade online, and then use your Windows Anytime Upgrade disc or the Windows installation disc to complete the process."
Microsoft confirmed Monday that such a process is being planned for Vista, but offered scant additional details.

I got the Preview program on CD from Microsoft.
It was a 180 days evaluation install witch would even run today after a 1 minute crack.
