Info on Downgrade Rights for Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows Servers

Downgrade Rights FAQ from Microsoft, just in case you want to offer downgrades to your customers - www.microsoft.com/oem/en/licensing/sblicensing/pages/downgrade_rights.aspx


Understanding Downgrade Rights

Windows downgrade rights
The availability of Windows 7 presents a great opportunity for you to consult with your customers and grow your business. With higher levels of reliability, security, performance, administration, and support offered by Windows 7, you can make a strong business case for the Windows 7 operating system.​​​​​​​​​​​​​

When and Why Would Customers Use Downgrade Rights for Windows 7?

Example:

  • Your customer's organization needs a new system running on the same platform as its existing systems—Windows Vista Business.

Downgrade rights offer a practical solution. The customer can:

  • Purchase a PC with Windows 7 Professional preinstalled.
  • Downgrade—at no additional cost—to Windows Vista.
  • Another compelling reason to encourage customers to move to Windows 7 is the ability to downgrade to Windows XP.
  • Move to Windows 7 Professional at the appropriate time. The system is licensed and ready for conversion.

Microsoft describes the logic behind the madness, writing, "We didn’t start from scratch, but reimagined it where it made sense and built on the right parts of NTFS where that made sense. Above all, we are delivering this in a pragmatic manner consistent with the delivery of a major file system—something only Microsoft has done at this scale."
