Are you going to buy Win7 at these Prices

I was hoping that Microsoft would have reasonable prices on Windows 7.
These Prices to me are most unreasonable.

Windows 7 Starter $199,95
Windows 7 Home Premium $259,95
Windows 7 Professional $299,95
Windows 7 Ultimate $319,95
Windows 7 Enterprise Unknown

Windows 7 64 bit

If those are official, that's a big disappointment.

Win 7 Pro x64, VM Win XP, Win7 Pro Sandbox, Kubuntu 11

Yes Windows Se7en Pro. Considering that is the approximate amount I paid for XP Pro Se7en years ago. :)

Win7, XP, Vista x64, Ubuntu 9.04

without official sources, I will wait until we get closer to release date.... I heard that the prices may be higher but I think that is only because people are used to the XP and Vista pricing.

No, but fortunately my buddy works for MS, so I will get it for probably less than $60. When Vista/Office 2007 came out I got Vista Ultimate for $50 and Office Ultimate for $60.

W7 Ultimate x64/W10 Pro x64 dual boot main build-remote pc W10 Pro x64 Insider Preview/W7 Pro x64

Even at that the price for the Ultimate retail is $$80 less then seen for Vista 2yrs. ago! I think MS is taking into account the economy as well as the time 7 is intended to be on the shelves. Vista was right after the holidays when everyone was spent out yet people rushed for the Ultimate edition then!
