Dell Vista PCs to ship with Windows 7 for free

On Monday, Dell has began offering buyers the choice to hold off on receiving their desktop or notebook PCs until Windows 7 becomes available. The computer maker is not only offering a free upgrade to Windows 7 on any PC it sells with Windows Vista as part of its new Windows 7 Free and Easy program, but offering to perform the switchover itself. This means any PC sold will, at the buyer's request, ship to them with Windows 7 right on the new operating system's launch date of October 22nd or very soon thereafter.

The free upgrade only applies to Vista Home Premium or higher operating systems, however. Other companies have not announced similar plans to Dell's. [via CNET]
