Pre Order win 7. Why only US and Canada

Hi Guys,

I want to pre order windows 7 and benefit from the low price but I notice its only for US and Canada. Why is that. Is there going to be a discount available for Europe as well.

Ok pre order ends tomorrow. I only want a download, no shipping. So if someone has an answer please be quick..Thanks

Due to an EU ruling , we will get the FULL OS , for an upgrade price. Its all down to an anti-trust case against Microsoft .

We may have to wait for it tho I'm afraid until the case is sorted out by the EU.

We wont be getting IE8 pre installed , instead we will have the option to choose the browser of our choice.Check out the thread for more info ( discussion gets a bit heated , but its all good )

Windows 7 to be shipped in Europe sans IE

Windows 7 pricing latest: $137 family pack, steep discounts in UK

By John Lister


Across the Atlantic, British buyers will (as usual) be paying more for the software in direct comparison to the U.S., but the discounts on offer are much steeper. Whereas the advance payment offer in the U.S. cuts the price of a Home Premium upgrade from $120 to $50, the equivalent U.K. deal from some retailers is a two-thirds price cut, from 150 to 50.

Shamed in the USA again.

Actually this TREAD is rather old and very much out of DATE. The UK will have almost as good a deal as China...
