The release date for Windows 8 is coming very soon. In the run-up to the release there is an interesting tidbit of information with regards to the licensing side of things. If you buy an OEM license of Windows 8 Pro, then you will have downgrade rights for Windows Vista and Windows 7. That means, if people don’t like Windows 8 and want to downgrade to Windows 7 or Windows Vista, then they will be able to do that.
I don’t know about you, but I for one will stay away from Windows 8. That being said, I think that Microsoft should also allow people to buy Windows 7 if they really want it.
