Windows 7 a big pre-order hit


by David Allen

The latest operating system offering from software giant Microsoft is flying off the virtual shelves, according to the online retailer Amazon.

Windows 7 has been pre-ordered more in the first eight hours of it becoming available, than Windows Vista was in its entire seventeen week pre-order scheme.

Of course one of the differences here is that the pre-order time is limited and will end on the 9th August, and the pre-order prices are good too, with the home version starting at around £50 and the professional priced at around £100.

All pre-ordered versions of Windows 7 will be shipped on the 22nd October, which is the same day as the operating system goes on sale in the stores.

According to analyst IDC, it is estimated that around fifty million copies of Windows 7 will be sold in Europe.
