Windows Anytime Upgrade (WAU)

One of the new features in Windows 7 is Windows Anytime Upgrade (WAU). It will provide end users with a quick and easy upgrade process to "more premium" versions of Windows 7. All you have to do is purchase an upgrade key to unlock the additional features.

This will finally ensure that you will end up with the Windows 7 flavour you prefer, no matter what version you start out with. It is also great news for OEMs who can now price their PCs and notebooks more "competitively" by including only the most basic Windows 7 SKU - Windows 7 Home Basic (for emerging markets) or Windows 7 Home Premium. Their customers can then upgrade at their leisure and expense!

In this article, we are going to take an inside look at Windows Anytime Upgrade and see how it works, step by step. We even have actual screenshots of the process so you can see for yourselves just how easy it is. Remember, you read it here first!

Do note that this information has not been publicly released by Microsoft, and they will probably deny the veracity of this article (as usual...) but we will let you, the reader, decide just how accurate we have been with our Microsoft scoops... Just take a look at our previous Microsoft scoops :

If you have a scoop you want to share with us, just contact us! It doesn't have to be Microsoft-related. It can be anything in the tech industry, from mobile phones to P2P software. Just drop us a line!
