Windows 7 'will be free for four months'

Windows 7 'will be free for four months'

Those who install Windows 7, the new operating system from Microsoft, will be able to use the product for free for four months.

The company announced that there will be a 30-day trial period in which users will be able to assess whether or not they wish to upgrade permanently to the product.

However, a spokesman for the company told Computerworld that the grace time is actually 120 days because of a loophole in which users can reset the clock.

Microsoft will be releasing the operating system onto the market on October 22nd 2009.

It is thought that a number of problems that Vista was criticised for will be addressed.

Among the benefits that those who install the new operating system will be able to take advantage of are faster boot and installation times, easier access to drivers and more intelligent power management.

Microsoft is set to launch a new version of its office suite during the first half of 2010.
