As I commented in a previous thread.... Well, An IT System Admin friend of mine had a 'teleconference' with MS on the subject of Win7 the other day; when I was talking with him, he asked me if there was anything I wanted to know about Win7? I ( in a 'tongue-in-cheek' mode) said yeah, ask them 'how much they're going to charge for the Retail versions? To be honest, I didn't seriously expect him to ask, or even get a response, but, it turned out they did give an answer of sorts!... The reply was.... ...Microsoft aren't releasing their pricing structure yet, but it'll be interesting for everyone concerned.... It was that last part that I found intriguing...."but it'll be interesting for everyone concerned" Could we be in for a surprise? Hmmm! News is coming via a leaked Memo Best Buy Memo Hints at Windows 7 Pricing - InternetNews.com That they may well be offering a low-price deal for Windows7 after all... Let's hope this applies across all Markets Fingers Crossed!
