ars technica lists the new windows 7 announced pricing structure. I’m intrigued, as I’m still running Windows XP on my home computer, and within Parallels on my Macbook and my iMac at work. Windows 7 might be the first Microsoft [software] product I’ll purchase in almost 8 years, ever since I bought Windows XP.
From everything I’ve read and seen (I have yet to download and install a copy of the beta/release candidate), Windows 7 blows both XP and Vista out of the water. We’ll see if it holds a candle to MacOS, especially with the SnowLeopard release. I applaud Apple and their pricing structure, only charging $29 for an upgrade from Leopard to SnowLeopard. Add that to the fact that a retail “Family Pack” of MacOS can be installed on up to 5 machines for only $199… Apple has their software pricing right!
