Intel On a Windows Vista or Vindows 7 disk, all versions of the operating system are present, from Starter to Ultimate, and everything in between. So, if you want too upgrade to a more capable version of Windows down the road, all you need to do is pop the Windows disk in, let Windows Anytime Upgrade do its thing, and you're done. It seems like Intel is experimenting with a similar technology... For its processors.

Are they sure about doing this ?

Well, intel do a very good job for many opensource projects, but as a big company, some managers can take bad decisions.

Don't know why/whether it is legal to sell something they know in advance it can do more after a simple update and with no reason.
People are they able to sue Intel for this ?

I still can't understand how I can buy a physical thing (a piece of hardware I can touch!) but limited to use only some parts.
