Windows 7 Goes Pre-Order In The UK [news.bbc.co.uk]
The latest version of Microsoft's flagship operating system, Windows 7, is available for pre-order in the UK.

Amazon said that sales of Windows 7 in the first eight hours it was available outstripped those of Windows Vista's entire 17 week pre-order period.

The home version of the operating system costs around 50, while the professional version costs around 100.

The limited number of pre-ordered copies will be shipped on 22 October, the same day it goes on sale in stores.

Not that happy with the fact as a Ultimate owner (3 times over) there is no special pricing for that but 49 for the home edition is a pretty spectacular price...

Do you think there are actually limited numbers for this or it's just a marketing ploy?

Oh, it's a marketing ploy, for sure. However, I have to agree, it's a good idea to do it this way.

It looks like the pre-order special is no longer available at Amazon.co.uk.

I had it in my shopping cart yesterday, and this morning I received the message '...no longer available...' when I tried to checkout...

note to self 'stop procrastinating' lol

Just went to Amazon UK, offer for Win7 Home is now 75?

Funny to see in the "What Do Customers Ultimately Buy After Viewing This Item?" underneath, 34% of people buying Vista. Makes me wonder about the accuracy of that stat.

Yes, they are showing again, but the prices have gone up considerably...
