    Lightbulb Vista Downgrade Rights to keep XP alive

    Internet community / forums / discussion boards are buzzing with words about the the nearing death of Windows XP as Microsoft is in process to stop production for OEM / Retail versions of this product after 30th June.





    However many do not know or rather do not consider that Microsoft Vista END user license comes with an option called Windows Vista Downgrade rights.



    What is Windows Vista Downgrade Rights ?

    If you are a legal owner of Windows Vista OS (Business / Ultimate), you are allowed to downgrade your copy to Windows XP (Pro / x64 / Tablet PC) free of charge. Which means if you buy Windows Vista and for any reason you do not wish to continue with Windows Vista, Microsoft allows you to downgrade and install Windows XP on your system free of charge.

    This is one unique sales pitch from any company! If you dont like my new product; go back to the old !

    This will probably make more people try out Vista, knowing that they can always go back.

    Nice article, btw !

    Thanks for sharing.........
    But I dont think people after using vista will go back to XP, only condition is they have sufficient hardware configuration to run vista smoothly.

    Hi Ravi, there are many certain condition in which people will think to go back to WinXP... Many many businesses run custom build applications for their setup and many time due to lack of support from the software developer, that cant be implemented in an upgraded OS..

    I am just giving you an example, in our case our cafes have license for vista with farely higher end systems (X2 / DC / C2D + 1GB+ RAMs) but we are forced to use XP as the cafe management software didnt give us free upgrade to Vista compatible versions (CafeZee) hence unless we buy a new vista supported version of that application, we cant switch to vista !!!
