Windows 7 family pack licencing deal.

Just read this on various sites regarding the proposed three license ‘family pack’ of Windows 7.

********************************

‘Regarding the Windows 7 Family Pack, Microsoft has now confirmed a number of details about this packaging. The Windows 7 Family Pack provides a Setup disc and three product keys for Windows 7 Home Premium, providing you with the ability to legally install the product on three PCs. It will cost just $149.99 in the US (C$199.99 in Canada), a significant savings over three Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade boxes. But here’s where the catch comes: Microsoft says it is only offering the Family Pack “until supplies last.” That’s right, it’s a temporary offer.

It gets worse. The Windows 7 Family Pack won’t be offered at all in many markets, and in some others–like Europe–there apparently won’t be a Family Pack offer until 2010. I haven’t been able to confirm the full country listing for Family Pack as of this writing’

Damn shame it’s looking like the deal might now be available over here in the UK 😦

  1. So long as it’s not like the multi buy pack of CA anti virus licences I bought for the family. I was supposed to get a 3 pack and only got one key so I complained and they sent me three then when I reinstalled my machine it wouldn’t let me use the code again on the same machine it was on to begin with. I got three months worth out of it if i was lucky and then gave it up as a bad job and went with AVG. I’d have gone with AVG in the first place but AVG didn’t have a free vista product at the time and CA was cheap. If I hear the pricing on Windows 7 is any good in the middle east I might have to wangle a week in Dubai to bring a suitcase full of windows licences back. Gone are the days of duty free booze and fags it’s all about the software now 🙂
