A project on Windows 7Edit
Inclusion of criticism of Windows Vista Ultimate only being capable of being upgraded to 7 UltimateEdit
The following text is disputed
Some Windows Vista Ultimate users have expressed concerns over Windows 7 pricing and upgrade options. Windows Vista Ultimate users wanting to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7 must either pay $219.99 to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate or perform a clean install, which requires them to reinstall all of their programs.
I personally think this is irrelevant, because this is merely a complaint from users who did not realize the implications of Microsoft's upgrade policy only allowing upgrades within the same OS family. Hence, I feel that this is insignificant, the tone of this statement feels like it's an attack, and the entire second half is sourced to Microsoft itself.22:58, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
