Free Windows Vista Upgrade Coupons Starting OctoberS

Thanks to Microsoft's sluggishness in getting their Vista operating system out, and thus, missing Christmas '06, they're offering free upgrade coupons to new computer buyers starting October. If you buy a "Vista-capable PC" later this year, you'll get a coupon for a free upgrade to Windows Vista when it does come out Q1 2007.

This promotion is most likely a way to placate angry PC manufacturers like Dell, who would see a sharp drop in sales thanks to people waiting until Vista was out to buy a new PC. Instead, now they can still go ahead an buy a computer for Christmas and still get their Vista-fix next year. It's a win-win for manufacturers and customers.
