Enterprises that purchase new PCs can now downgrade to Windows XP or Vista and upgrade to Windows 7 whenever they like.

The Register: Microsoft had been planning to end its policy of allowing enterprises that purchase new PCs to downgrade to Windows XP or Vista and upgrade to Windows 7 later. But now Microsoft has extended indefinitely the deadline for upgrading, which had been set for the first half of 2011. "Going forward, businesses can continue to purchase new PCs and utilize end user downgrade rights to Windows XP or Windows Vista until they are ready to use Windows 7," Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc wrote in a blog.

Microsoft also released the beta for the first Windows 7 service pack today.
