Windows 7 upgrade
I bought a laptop for my wife, for her birthday. We got it online through Costco.com and it came with MS Vista and an optionl to get a free upgrade to MS Windows 7, once it came out. I submitted the appropriate paperwork (similar to a rebate) to the manufacturer and waited. Apparently, I did something wrong and I was denied. I appealed and was accepted. I then have to wait until it becomes available (mid October).
I will post my experience with the install (upgrade really). I read several posts saying that it can take "24 hours or more" to perform the upgrade. I do not believe that and, while I dont particularly like MS, I hope to dispell that rumor and maybe help others that intend to follow the same process.
