Windows 7 Desktop
HP plans to offer the upgrades for both their consumer and business models that will be sold from June 25 to October 22, which is the date of the official launch of the OS.
The medium of upgrade is via a pair of disks which will be sent to all buyers of HP PCs. While one disk contains the update, the other will contain an update assistant tool which will assist in the installation of drivers in HP systems.
The update does not come as a surprise since both companies jointly collaborated in the development of the OS.
Microsoft has since long sought the help of HP to help them offer insights and information on emerging technologies. This way Microsoft has tailored for the first time an OS keeping in mind the complete possibilities of latest trends in hardware.
This collaboration has also helped HP in helping them engineer the next generation of PCs from their ultra-slim notebooks and high-performance desktops to their much vaunted TouchSmart PCs.
It is believed that Microsoft’s failure to seek the counsel of hardware-vendors in the making of Vista is the biggest reason for its failure. And it is this lack of collaboration that has prompted Microsoft to seek help from the very people whose computers their OS are installed on.
Experts around the globe have good things to say about the new OS and are totally satisfied with it. They claim that this may be the greatest OS Microsoft has built to date and can help them reclaim lost customers who have started switching over to Linux series of GNU OS.
