Windows 7 Allows Easy Upgrades

by | Jan 31, 2024 | All | 0 comments

Microsoft recently announced that Windows 7 will include a feature to allow instant upgrades from lower editions of Windows 7 to a higher edition (i.e., from Starter to Home Premium) with the click of a button. The feature, called “Windows Anytime Upgrade” or WAU, will make the process of upgrading much simpler and more convenient than before.

Typical scenarios for upgrading include:

  1. Users running Windows 7 Starter Edition on their netbooks, who wish to upgrade to Home Premium to take advantage of Aero Peek and other enhanced functionality from their OS such as Taskbar Previews. Desktop themes are also enabled, and so is Remote Media Streaming.
  2. Users running Home Premium on their laptops who wish to connect to their office network’s domain or run their old custom business applications using Windows XP Mode can upgrade to Professional.
  3. Users running Home Premium or Professional who want to encrypt and secure their USB devices.

With Microsoft’s early announcements of pricing and upgrade options for the upcoming Windows 7 release, you have the opportunity to plan now for the investment strategy you will use when the time comes to upgrade. If you need information or advice about your options, don’t hesitate to call us.
