We're updating our site to improve your experience. We apologize for any issues that may occur.
I am working with our content team on this one and it does seem their are some discrepancies and we are looking into it. I will update everyone as soon as we get confirmation on this.

Any movement? This would be rather a large benefit if it is something Microsoft changed but didn't bother to send you notification of. They do that, change licensing around without telling you ;)

We are still looking into this! We've got a bit more information but still not the answer to the Windows 7 question. But don't worry, I am on it! If we do discover that the licensing allows upgrades from Home and other editions it will be a win for everyone!
@shipley.c and all,
We have confirmed that the licensing available through TechSoup is indeed Open Licensing. However, we did get some other information which should be very helpful for nonprofits looking to upgrade from Home editions to Windows 7 Pro or Enterprise and I have updated the original post in this thread with the new information:
If you have a licensed version of Home or other Windows editions editions you can locate a Charity Reseller who is offering Windows 7 upgrades through the Charity Open License program. Windows upgrade products available through Charity Resellers have a wider range of upgrade path options. For more information, please review Microsoft's list of Charity Resellers: www.microsoft.com/.../charity-resellers.aspx
