Vista Disc Will Contain All Versions
Posted 20 September 2006 - 06:06 PM
In an effort to simplify the distribution of Windows Vista and make it easier for customers to upgrade, Microsoft will include the various retail versions of the operating system on one DVD instead of having separate discs for each Vista edition.
In the past, Microsoft distributed each version of the Windows client OS on its own disc. However, in a move it is calling "Windows Anytime Upgrade"--which cuts costs for Microsoft as well as making it easier for customers to upgrade--the version of Windows Vista that a customer buys will be activated by his or her product key and will be on a disk with the other editions of the OS.
For example, if a customer buys Windows Vista Home Premium from a retail store, he or she will get a DVD that also includes Windows Vista Ultimate, but the product key for the purchase will only activate Home Premium and its features and functionality, said Mike Burk, a Microsoft spokesperson.
"With Windows Anytime Upgrade, the idea is to provide customers with the most convenient user experience possible by enabling them to more easily and directly upgrade to a higher edition of Windows Vista from within their current edition," he said.
Now I wonder how long its going to take someone to figure out how to hack this??

...And also make it easier for people to become ilegal.
They're really working hard to get Vista ready on the beginning of 2k7.
Wonder what are the improvements over latest builds. Im already curious about this possible new build.
Eyes open !
