I can believe the full versions might cost more: It sounds like a calculated plan to get extra money from businesses that skipped Vista, and to gouge OEMs for more per PC.
But, I expect upgrade versions to remain the same cost. They might even be cheaper.
There simply won't be any "killer apps" available that require Win7 at the time of release. So, it makes more sense for them to keep the upgrade cost down and get revenue from more people that otherwise wouldn't have upgraded.
Feature-wise, their desktop already looks less impressive than KDE4.2 and by October they'll be competing with KDE4.3. If they charge more for upgrades, I'd recommend everyone try dual-booting their current versions of Windows with Kubuntu. Heck, I recommend that anyway. :)
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
