    Probably not. I haven't seen that price published anywhere with certainty - but it's rumored to be about $20 to $30.

    Hi

    This is a technical support forum, we try to keep everyone up to speed with all of the current information on what's happening with Windows 7.

    The Windows Anytime Upgrade will not be implemented or go live until after the General Availability date of October 22, 2009.

    Until then, we don't have any more information than what is posted on the Official Windows 7 announcement portal.

    Thanks for understanding.

  • There is no Anytime Upgrade from Pro to Ultimate.  There are only 3 - Starter to Home Premium, Home Premium to Pro and Home Premium to Ultimate.  Details are in the blog post here http://windowsteamblog.com/blogs/windows7/archive/2009/07/31/windows-anytime-upgrade-and-family-pack-pricing.aspx

  • As each SKU contains all other "flavors", too, those can be unlocked via Anytime Upgrade... err, anytime. Don't be misleaded by the examples in the above mentioned blog.

  • Just found this: "[Windows 7] Professional to Ultimate £85" (http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/264640/microsofts-outrageous-windows-7-upgrade-ripoff.html). As the other prices and their U.S. correspondings match what the Windows Team Blog said, convert it yourself.

    As seen on the news today, the prices are finally available. In the US, it seems to be $130 from Win 7 Pro to Win 7 Ultimate. If you're in the EU, the price will be €135/£85.

  • Well - even if it's not a strictly technical issue -, this pricing policy is just hilarious. Who shall pay this €135/£85 in addition to £190 for 7 Prof when he is offered 7 Ultimate at the same time for £200 (Microsoft Store UK)? Not to speak of OEM "free upgrade options" with Vista Ultimate -> Windows 7 Ultimate that cost around €150/£128 at the online shops of your choice. The only way I can think of that is that the "retail" market is some kind of luxury for Microsoft, where the real money comes from preinstalled Windows PCs.

  • Man, if these prices are true.  M$ is sticking it to us consumers.  I just wished that M$ would have gave pple like me who bought Vista Ult. a deal for WIN 7 Ult.  Well, I already Have WIN 7 Pro pre-ordered.  Will have to wait and see what the confirmed price will be for this anytime upgrade to Ult.  Thanks all for your prompt replies.

  • Hi

    People who bought Vista Ultimate do get a deal. They can purchase the Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade for a 100 USD less than the full version.
