The Upgrade Version

So the negative spin last night and this morning on Vista is Microsoft’s decision to enforce the notion of the “upgrade version.” You cannot install Windows Vista without Windows 2000 or XP already installed on the system. This bucks the previous process of installing Windows from scratch, but proving you own the prior version by inserting the disc for verification. I’m going to go on record as saying I don’t like this – not one damn bit, but I saw it coming.
