Windows 7-To-XP Downgrade Lives On

Microsoft has for a second time extended the period in which customers who purchase a Windows 7 PC can "downgrade" the operating system to Windows XP.

Under the latest extension, Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate users can downgrade to a similar version of XP or, in a far less likely scenario, Vista, through the entire Windows 7 lifecycle—which runs through 2020.

Windows 7-to-XP downgrade rights were most recently set to expire within 18 months of Windows 7's October 2009 release or with the arrival of Windows 7 SP1, depending on which came first. Previously, Microsoft said the downgrade option would be available only for the six months following Windows 7's debut.
