Today Microsoft announced Express Upgrade to Windows Vista for purchases made between October 26, 2006 and March 15, 2007. It is really strange that many manufacturers and Microsoft made a lot of people feel warm and fuzzy with the Vista Capable PC label attached to most if not all new systems, but now they may cut off many of them. However if you purchased a Vista Capable PC before October 26, 2006 don't give up. You may still be able to get refund from the PC manufacturer. My personal experience was with HP, which offered me to either cancel the order and reorder, return the PC or get a refund comparable with the price of the Vista upgrade. Guess which one I picked... Dovizhdane!
