Yesterday, the US software giant has confirmed plans to officially release the next-generation operating system on October 22. Buyers of Windows Vista software will be offering free or discounted Windows 7.
To reach this milestone, Microsoft office 2013 product key will end the software development phase by mid or late next month, vice president Bill Veghte said in an interview. "The user has responded very well to the last RC release (Release Candidate) of Windows 7."
Right after the launch of the RC near the end of Windows 7 last month, Microsoft has confirmed plans to release the operating system before the holiday shopping season.
Phil McKinney, GD Technology of HP Computer Manufacturing, also expressed confidence that Microsoft will launch Windows 7 home premium product key as scheduled.
Microsoft said it would give preference to those who bought the Vista operating system close to Windows 7. Accordingly, Windows Vista buyers will get a free copy or discount of the new operating system. Similar to previous programs, the discount or free will depend on the manufacturer of the computer. Microsoft's intent is to apply this program to Vista Home Premium and premium versions.
However, the program will not perform as soon as Windows 7 launch, but Microsoft promises to release a number of cheap upgrade for those who used Windows product key.
Windows 7 will be available in five different editions, including Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate. Windows 7 Basic will be available in emerging markets. The selling price has not been announced.
