      They probably have not sold their allocation of the cut price deal MS is giving retailers.

      Re: Windows 7 would you!

      Would I upgrade to 7 from Vista? No. It's too similar and doesn't really offer anything new.

      If I was upgrading from XP on the other hand, then yes, I would think it was probably worth it.

      32 bit or 64 bit? 32 bit, definately. Too much software incompatibiltiy with 64 bit, unfortunately.

      Until Microsoft comes up with a 32-bit compatibility layer for it's 64 bit OS's it's going to remain a minority interest IMO.

      I'd rather pay 45 now than 68 in 5 weeks time.
      Looks like they have sold out now though.

      I think the full price is nearer 150, with about 80 for an upgrade. If you can find any at 68 a pre-release price, jump at it.

      Still under 65 at amazon

      Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Full Version (PC DVD): Amazon.co.uk: Software

      The family pack (3 user license) is expected to be 150 and was supposed to be available for a limited period from 01/09, but i haven't seen it yet.

      The reports I have read mention 18/10 for this, for a limited number and this is for Upgrade only, no full versions.

      Microsoft to raise some EU Windows 7 prices
