Windows Vista Ultimate customers
While I applaud what Microsoft is doing in the retail space (decrapifying the PCs to start with, offering deals on Home Premium and Professional - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/offers/ms-store-bundle.aspx, there's one other group of users that need a bit more TLC.
Those that believed in the Vista ultimate experience. While their Home Premium and Professional brethern get discounts, those who are running Vista Ultimate get no discount whatsoever
Many are in the "Windows Update" forum asking where their update to Windows 7 is since they suffered through Vista.
Ultimate users were promised extra "stuff' and it never was delivered. Oh sure if you want to count the few crumbs that were thrown out, and the 47 million language packs that were marketed as an "ultimate extra" but now when it's their turn to look for upgrade offers, there are none to be found.
So? Microsoft? How about coming out with some peace offering for your Windows Vista Ultimate customers, huh?
