Windows 7 will support downgrades too

Posted on Wednesday, Apr 08 2009 @ 03:09 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
CNET reports Windows 7 will enable users to downgrade their operating system to Vista or XP:
Also, as noted earlier Monday by ZDNet blogger Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft plans a similar program for Windows 7, allowing users to go back not only to Vista, should they choose, but also to Windows XP.

Microsoft hasn't detailed exactly how downgrade rights will work with Windows 7--beyond confirming that users will be able to go back to XP--but presumably the rights will be attached to the Ultimate and Professional versions of Windows 7.
