    Every HP computer that is "Windows Vista ready" and shipped with a Windows Vista upgrade coupon will get a free copy of Windows Vista when it is released. However, they will also get a free DVD full of various drivers, as well as a small guide on upgrading to Windows Vista, to make the upgrade process as worry free as possible. HP has worked since 2001 with Microsoft to ensure an easy upgrade path.

    Now, I wonder if they will reward past customers (2 years at most) with an upgrade coupon. Would be nice.

    I think they are probably trying to make more of the fact that they are putting them all on a single DVD for ease of upgrade rather than that they are free. But you are right - its the least you would expect
