Microsoft on Tuesday confirmed that it does plan to offer a "family pack" for Windows 7 that can be used on up to three PCs.
The software maker acknowledged the move as part of a blog entry Tuesday afternoon. However, it still isn't saying how much it will charge for the family pack, which allows three installations of the home premium version of Windows
The move was hardly a surprise, after Microsoft included references to the family pack as part of licensing terms in a test version of Windows 7 that leaked onto the Internet.

They're limiting it to the Home Premium version of Windows 7, which is fine for most people. The more advanced users will feel a bit left out having to pay a premium for Professional or Ultimates versions.
One other odd thing I read about this Family Pack deal was that they're only allowing it in certain markets. They didn't specify what those markets were.
