A while ago, I had mentioned that I bought a new computer in order to secure a copy of Microsoft Windows Vista. The computer, which I bought back in November 2006, is a Compaq Presario SR2050NX and included the Windows XP MCE 2005 operating system. As part of the deal, I am supposed to receive Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium from Hewlett-Packard (the parent company of Compaq) after Vista's release. Well, Windows Vista was released back in January. So, where is my free upgrade?
The last time that I checked the status of my Windows Vista order, it said that Vista would be shipped in March 2007. It seems like a while to wait, since I can already go out and buy a new computer with Vista running on it now. On the other hand, compared to the old Dell computer running Windows 98, this new desktop computer is a big improvement. My old computer used to crash on a daily basis.
Is anybody else (who bought a new computer in the last 3-4 months) still waiting for their free Vista upgrade?
