I think every one know that the Successor of Vista “Windows 7” will debut on October 22 2009. Similar to Windows Vista, Microsoft is releasing the Windows 7 OS in 5 different versions.
So our idea in writing this article is to explain the differences between these versions or editions and make you choose the right version for you (system) needs.
Also we already notified you about free upgradtion offer to Windows 7 ,for those who buy a new PC or Laptop with Window vista between June 26th (2009) to January 31st, 2010.
