Many vendors now offer free Vista upgrades
Microsoft Corp. said it will offer coupons for free or heavily discounted upgrades to its long-delayed Windows Vista operating system to consumers who buy computers this holiday season ahead of the software's release.
The software giant said the program will defer around $1.5 billion in revenue from its current fiscal second-quarter to its third quarter. Microsoft, which will report quarterly results on Thursday, said it does not expect the deferral to affect its full-year sales outlook.
