Upgrade Vista Basic to Windows 7. Go to Microsoft Website, find out that it is only possible to upgrade Vista Home Premium. Try to find out about upgrading Basic to Home Premium. Read a lot of useless stuff, find out about Anytime Upgrade that costs $80. Read more useless stuff, eventually find out that it requires physical media and is only available to Canada and the US. Failure.
Fuck you, Microsoft. Not only upgrading Vista to Vista costs you money, but it is also impossible unless one wishes to do a clean install, which is a pain in the arse.
