A project on Windows 7Edit

It is a project topic for exams. GohanJaiswal (talk) 11:11, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

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.[1][2] Windows Vista Ultimate users wanting to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7 must either pay $219.99[3] to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate or perform a clean install, which requires them to reinstall all of their programs.[4]

Editor Sek-2 (talk · contribs) states that this must be included, as it has been covered by secondary sources.

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.
