It looks like Microsoft are only trying to show that Windows 7 sold out fast to boost sales. Their site says that the promotional prices have ended, but there are still many UK stores with plenty of stock at the issue price

Yeah but doesn't that mean the MS store has sold out, not that you cant get W7 from somewhere else at the promo price?

And i can understand MS limiting this offer, after all, its costing them money selling for this price.

I agree it means that the Microsoft Site has sold out, but obviously all stocks are ultimately from Microsoft. What I think they wanted by posting this message on their Website was to grab headlines about Windows 7 selling out in 1 day, which many websites did report, however we know it was not true as many UK stores are still selling it at the discount price. As for Microsoft losing money, they are marketing a product that they want to be successful and all marketing costs money, I am sure they will have taken it into consideration when setting the price.
