Microsoft Will Allow Downgrades from Windows 8

As it has done in the past, Microsoft will give new PC buyers the option to downgrade their new purchases to either Windows 7 or Vista (shudder) big grin Missing from the list this time is rights for Windows XP, which Microsoft is encouraging users to consider retired.

Traditionally, downgrade rights are available only from OEM copies of Windows, those that are pre-installed by computer manufacturers. It looks to be the same with Windows 8.
