What's the betting, this is for America only?.

It says, ".......offering PC buyers worldwide....", so I suppose we'll just have to wait & watch. G

Does this "free" upgrade only apply to an overpriced new PC ?

Bill & Alan say you will have to apy top $$ for new O/S when it cones out, so much for helping out the Beta testers then Bill!

Sounds to me like there will be lots of not so legit Vista licences floating about the place from people nicking the coupons when at work. Sounds a reasonable deal however.

Fair enough. Be prepared for lots more activity on this forum when vista comes out and first time buyers/inexperienced users get a bit nervey about installing a new OS.

It certainly only applies to new computers - whether or not they're overpriced is a matter for you to decide.
