Beware of Windows 7 downgrade/upgrade mess | Hardware 2.0 | ZDNet.com

“Under Microsoft’s planned enterprise licensing rules, businesses that buy PCs before April 23, 2010, with Windows 7 pre-installed can downgrade them to Windows XP, then later upgrade them to Windows 7 when they’re ready to migrate their users. But PCs bought on or after April 23 can only be downgraded to Vista – which is of no help for XP-based organizations, Silver notes – and could cause major headaches and add more costs to the Windows 7 migration effort.”
