I'm looking to buy a netbook and I see they all have WIn XP but I heard they will come with Win 7 in the next few days. So if I wait another week, will they all have Win 7 installed? Or will they let me upgrade to Win 7 if I buy a XP netbook before then?

No. They won't come with windows 7 unless specifically advertised as such. You will be able to purchase an upgrade to windows 7

I doubt it netbooks have a special licence for XP whereby Microsoft sold the software cheap to manuafacurers,i may be wrong but i think netbooks with 7 will be more expensive,

You absolutely correct, Microsoft allowed the net book providers to use a kosha copy of XP at a massivly reduced price, but in return the manufartoers had to keep within certain boundaies regarding hardware capabilites of the netwoork,

You will see Win7 on netbooks, but i agree that the prices will be higher than XP.
