Pre-orders back at Amazon

Got an email this morning saying that you can pre-order Windows 7 again. It's not as cheap as last time and Ultimate is included this time, here's the page at Amazon for anyone interested.

I know their prices aren't as cheap as the original pre-order offer that came out because Home Premium is £64.98 and I got mine for £44.97.

My Microsoft Security Essentials went off when I clicked on the link. It came up with this.

Given those are full versions -- not upgrades -- that's actually not bad pricing. Nothing discounted like that in the U.S. has shown up.

Also interesting the way MS is now saying they're shipping everything including IE8 and those in Europe will be able to purchase separate full and upgrade editions, etc., just like the rest of the world.

That full version pricing might go back up a good deal in the future when they start listing upgrades, etc., as well.

Of course if they list upgrade family packs over there later, too, the pricing isn't competitive, at least for Home Premium.

I know it's a pretty decent price I was just saying it's not as cheap as the first offer that was around.

The copy I have ordered is a full version also not an upgrade and mine was cheaper.

mdttb I have no idea why you got an alert as the link was just pointing to a web page at Amazon.

Amazon.co.uk: windows 7
26% off on the Ultimate edition catches my interest here! When the first discounted preorder offers were seen the discounts only applied to the Home Premium and Professional editions.

This is a good one to catch here now seeing the Ultimate edition with some discount there!

Windows 7 Ignoring Orders
I've noticed this on a number of occasions, most of which are too trivial to mention, that Window 7 offers you a dialogue box asking you whether you want something done or not, you click what you want, but it then goes and does the opposite. Most recently Windows wanted to restart to finish...

Fallout New Vegas (Pre-Orders)
So, I'm confused about this pre-order. I went to Gamestop yesterday to place my pre-order. My intentions were to pre-order the Colloctors Edition of the game itself as well as the hard cover CE Strategy Guide. (would go nicely with the CE Boxed game I think :) ) Here is my confusion.
