If looking to upgrade a number of workstations running XP to Windows 7 is it ok to purchase one Vista license and in sequence
- upgrade from XP to Vista
- Run some tests
- upgrade from Vista to Windows 7
The Vista license is now available to be used on the next XP workstation
Does anyone see any potential issues with this from a licensing point of view?
From a cost point of view the money for one Vista license seems a good payoff against the time of backup, clean install and application re-install of the suggested XP to Windows 7 path.
