Windows 7 prices released


by David Allen

Thanks to the EU there will no upgrades for UK customers because of the ruling that Microsoft can’t include Internet Explorer, so all customers will have to buy the full version.

Windows 7 will be available in Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate.

There is also a starter edition that is for the netbook market and will not be available to the public.

The recommended prices will be £169.99 for Home Premium, £219.99 for Professional and £229.99 for Ultimate.

These prices are on the high side and of course there are ways of getting around paying the full price.

There is a pre-order scheme due to run between the 15th July and 14th August, which will allow customers to get their hands on a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium for £49.99 and Premium for £99.99.

There is still the browser issue as the operating system will not have IE.

Customers who may think that they can simply download Chrome or Firefox will face a problem when there is no browser to start with, and this is an issue that Microsoft says it is planning to address.

  1. Just use FTP - ftp://firefox.com - user = guest, password = anonymous

    The dir command to move around, type bin to set up a binary transfer. When you find the firefox.exe that you need, just type get firefoxe.exe

    Is this tech watch or just dumb watch?

  2. These prices are quite reasonable, anyone foolish enough or silly enough to try yet another bug riddled version of windows should be well compensated for their risk. How will MS be paying the money to each gambler? Will it be a check or direct deposit?
