Lots of people are debating buying Windows 7 PCs knowing that Windows 8 is just around the corner but the wait may be over. According to Mary Jo Foley, starting June 2, 2012 (around the same time as the Consumer Preview will be available) new PCs will ship with a free upgrade to Win8 and this offer will last until January 2013. There are more versions of Windows 7 than there are Windows 8 and because of that the update will be discounted but not free. The goal of course is to not create a lull in sales and get the back to school crowd buying without concerns.
