    Schools Agreement and downgrade

    Hey All,

    We are a part of the MS schools agreement and still use windows xp.
    I'm sure I heard somewhere that to downgrade to XP I'd need any new machines to have a windows 7 pro licence?

    Is this true?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    No its not true. All you need is a PC licensed to run Windows of any flavour. You are still licensed for downgrade rights. All my PCs come with whatever the cheapest version of Windows I can get hold of and use the agreement to put whatever version we require on them.
