UK customer pick up Windows 7 for half price
UK customers are to be plunged into a frightening mirror universe - but with a good Steve Ballmer in charge instead of an evil bearded Mister Spock. Yes, there's a subtle shift in the balance of power, one we don't experience very often - and the culprits are Microsoft. Mwah ha ha ha ha.
It's in a good way, though. CNET UK have confirmed the new version of Windows will sell in the UK for half the price our US brethren will be forking out. Full versions of Windows 7 Home Premium will cost around £65 in Blighty - less than the price that the upgrade version will retail for in the US (£72) and nearly half what they'll pay for the full version (£122).
It's already available to buy on Amazon, ready for its October release. So Windows lovers rejoice, let the street parties commence, and remember to rub it in the faces of any American chums you happen to chat to today.
