News Brits to get Windows 7 for £65

I guess it does pay to be a Brit... sometimes :p

Windows 7 Boxes

After confusing customers with European editions and upgrade versions, Britain will be able to buy a full copy of Windows 7 for just £65 – a massive discount on the full price and what Americans will be paying.

At the moment on Amazon.co.uk, a Home Premium version of Windows 7 can be bought for just £64.98 – what the site calls a 57 per cent discount. The Professional version is on sale for £149.98, a discount of 32 per cent, while the Ultimate edition is available for £168.98, a discount of 26 per cent.

Those prices are significantly less than what’s on offer in the US. On Amazon.com, the versions are selling for $199.99 (£121.65), $299.99 (£182.48) and $319.99 (£194.64) – meaning the UK is paying less for Microsoft products than Americans, a change from the usual situation.

But do we want it?

Personally Windows 7 marks my final jump away from ever intentionally running any M$ OS.

And the beginnings of Google coming in. I'll tell you one thing about the way they work - their OS will be free.... but scary in it's advertising potential and never willingly used by anyone with the slightest civil liberties concerns!

Well, I've been Brazen enough to avoid Vista altogether on my home system, letting others take the sucker punch, so Windows 7 is worth it (The system I've inherited has a OEM home premium vista license on it, which I promptly upgraded to windows 7)

I know some stuff is more expensive in the UK, but it seems like all the really good stuff is way cheaper. Can I come over there and live?

Most stuff is more expensive in the UK. Its the main reason we're not using the Euro yet, the uneducated masses would realise how much they're being ripped off.

If you're at university, and your university has a MSDNAA subscription, you can get Windows 7 for free. Just something to note.
