Microsoft's latest operating system Windows 7 has gone on sale in the UK almost three months ahead of schedule at massively reduces prices, it has emerged.
The software officially goes on sale to the general public on October 22, but Microsoft has released it early with prices starting from £49.99 for Windows Premium.
Early buyers will be able to snap up Windows 7 for a limited pre-sale period and will save up to £100 for the Premium package alone.

Microsoft announced early sales of its Windows 7 operating system, just days after Google announced it was releasing a rival product

Those who purchase Windows 7 Professional will pay £99.99 instead of £189.99.

A spokesperson for the company has said stocks are limited for the sale which runs from today until August 9.
But all UK versions of Windows 7 will not come with Internet Explorer, which means buyers must install a web browser to upgrade their computer's operating system.
Microsoft is currently in an ongoing legal battle with the EU which said that automatically installing Internet Explorer was anti-competitive to other browsers.
All sales of Microsoft 7 will be based on a first come first served basis, according to The Telegraph.

The early release comes just days after Google announced it would be launching a rival operating system Google Chrome OS.
Those wanting to buy the early release version can find copies for sale at High Street stores including Comet and Currys.

Wow is this guy there living under a rock or something, it has nothing to do with google's announcement the preorder sale was planed for july 15 in the uk long before google announced anything. On top of that nothing is being released early, you are only pre-ordering you will not receive windows 7 until Oct 22 same as everyone else.
