Most of the Netbook vendors have decided that they won’t be offering upgrades to Windows 7 to the netbooks running Windows 7. Currently, the netbook vendors have to pay just $25 for each XP license. And there are reasons why Windows 7 won’t be offered to N270 netbook users. Microsoft will be charging $45 per license for Windows 7 and thus, vendors will be forced to increase the cost of the netbook. If they keep the prices same, it may hurt the profits.
Right now, plans are to introduce Windows 7 to the netbooks that will be equipped with Atom N450 processor, which will be introduced in the month of October this year.
Although, I’m sure that there are many of us who are just not bothered whether our netbook vendors give us the option to upgrade to Windows 7 till we are able to get everything working ourselves.
