Windows 7 Family Pack prices leak
US retailers have leaked prices of the Windows 7 Family Pack, all but guaranteeing that Microsoft is set to introduce a multi-licence package.
Microsoft itself ignited speculation about the existence of the Family Pack, after it was was mentioned in the terms and conditions of a leaked build of Windows 7.
The terms and conditions suggested that the Family Pack would allow you to install the operating system on up to three PCs.
Microsoft refused to confirm the existence of the Family Pack, but now retailers in the US have been caught accidentally listing prices for the software.
US retailer Expercom was listing the Windows 7 Family Pack Home Premium Upgrade for $136.95 – which is only marginally more expensive than the cost of a single licence at Home Premium $119.99. Another retailer had the same pack listed at $144.95, according to ZDNet.com, although both retailers have now pulled down the products.
It waits to be seen whether British buyers will get as rough a deal on the Family Pack as they have with the regular Windows 7 prices, which sees us paying as much as 60% more than US buyers.
