LOL, you don't live in Quebec and it shows lol.

Still, I would have loved AT LEAST that microsoft reduces the price on full versions.

I have passed through a few times but never lived there, we might see some deals (not as good) on the full versions after Oct 22.

These companies really have to lower these prices if they want it to be a successful operating system in terms of sales, but overall I can't wait to buy to final Ultimate X64 version (looking around for better prices).
I agree with you. Im not interested in the 'upgrade' version because i just dont know enough about it. Id like the full version, but to pay $330 or $225 for the Pro/Home Premium?? Give me a break...

Why would someone want to spend over $300 on an OS when that money could be spent on a better video card or processor..

Just buy the upgrade version. It's the same as the full version. The same! When you install, choose the fresh install option, that's all.

Really? I just didnt know if you always needed to 'upgrade' and existing install of windows to use it, i mean it's called the UPGRADE option.

So if there are NO partitions with any windows installations i can use it to do a fresh install?

You can if you have an old windows xp/vista disk or reg key. Even if it is not currently installed.

There is a possibility you don;t even need that, the vista disk you could instal without registering or activating and then you could "upgrade" on top of that, but frankly I would expect that hole to be closed. Might wait to see if someone with a true RTM tests that first.

Also, can you not buy the OEM version in Canada? That's susualy anywhere from 1/2 to 2/3 the price of the retail version, it's the one I've always used.

Is there a French Canadian Microsoft Store?
Thread Title. From the list of countries my guess is "No". I guess Quebec will have that f-ing huge exchange rate because we import our French software from France :mad: Lucky enough if I'm able to get it for the US price... No, I don't want Ultimate to download a language pack to French.
