The children got new laptops for Christmas

and when they were ordered, it said that they were eligable for an upgrade to Windows Vista.

I guess that they will contact you when it becomes available, unless I'm wrong.

I also bought an HP but this site will work for Compaq also

Start here:
If you have trouble connecting, try again. It is a good link. I have had it say that the address could not be found, so just keep trying until you get connected. That site will tell you what you need and then send you on to the next site.

As Stated New M$ OS. Experience Tells Me to Wait....

In reply to: I have an HP computer

'til it hits Service Pack 1. MS has a habit of using common users as guinea pigs/beta 3 + testers. I note businesses (where huge losses are possible) are not overly anxious to adopt the new OS. A few problems are already showing up including security questions. IE7 is another consideration. Just 1 Mans' biased opinion. Grin
