    2 'New' Installation MSKBs/EULA Change/Anytime Upgrade FAQ

    EULA Changed on Anytime Upgrades:

    From Nick White [MSFT]:

    "Customers who purchase a retail copy of Windows Vista and then upgrade to
    another version of Windows Vista using Windows Anytime Upgrade will be
    affected by this modification, while all other WAU licensing terms remain
    unchanged.

    Now, those customers will be able to uninstall their upgraded copy of
    Windows Vista and re-install it on another device (usually, but not always,
    a PC). The number of device-to-device reassignments is no longer limited,
    provided that Windows Vista has been uninstalled from the original device."

    "Am I allowed to transfer my software from one device to another when I
    upgrade using Windows Anytime Upgrade?"

    Thanks for posting that info. The KBs help to clear up a lot of the upgrade
    / clean install confusion.

    The change in the Vista EULA for Anytime Upgrades is a wise move by
    Microsoft. Consumers shouldn't be penalized with a more restrictive license
    agreement when paying additional money for the 'privilege' to upgrade to a
    different version.
