[QUOTE=Babeman;4945757]Whoa cool! I put in my old vista key and it also says I can get windows 7 free! Awesome lol, windows 7 here I come...
You got the idea as me, that's why I'm here asking...
Free Win7? Hardly. More like a free loaner OS while you wait a few months for 7 to arrive.
Purchase...Vista retail ...between June 26, 2009 and January 31, 2010.
So if you bought it in the last two weeks or will buy Vista soon, you're golden, if not, you pay. Quite simple really. Lotsa dreamers in here though... lol

Read through the thread, Monster_User said that they're requiring you to provide a proof of purchase.

I haven't needed to provide proof of purchase, but I only went as far as seeing it said it was free.
There's probably some conditions in the fine print. There usually are.

I'll have to go all the way through the ordering and whatever, then I'll tell the rest of you.

:cort: you didn't read on far enough.
After you have provided the requested information below, to validation your purchase, you will be asked to complete the following steps:
- Please print out two copies of the order receipt page.
- Keep one copy for your personal records.
- Mail the second copy, along with your dated sales receipt, to the Microsoft Service Center. All mail must be postmarked by March 1, 2010 and received by April 1, 2010.
You have to mail then a physical copy of your order for the upgrade along with the proof of purcahse
How to get Windows 7 page.
See the link there that says "Buy a PC. Get a Windows 7 Upgrade"?
This is a promotion intended to get fence-sitters to buy a new computer, running Vista, now (instead of next year or whenever) with a promise to hand over a free upgrade to Windows 7, because nobody wants to buy an old OS on the eve of a new one. Right?
In other words, it's worthless for anyone not in the market for a cookie-cutter box.
Thanks, Goody. Can somebody close this?
