    Searching google for the MS part number brings up a number of results, some at a similar price (one even lower at $138!). Unless it's a bad distributor with sites automatically loading the product up, I'd say it's got a good chance of being accurate!

    I'm pretty sure they did this for Vista too didn't they, but it was only an introductory offer and was available only in the US

    Some good pricing - just beware of eCost.com. They often have good prices, but have horrible service and if you have any problem, you are stuck. Try NewEgg or or other reputable online retailer, just not eCost.

    So, well done to all those last week who speculated that MS would charge 3 times the early pre-issue discounted price of $49.99 for the 3 user Family Pack.
    On this basis the EU 3 user Family Pack would be 3 times £49.99, or £149.99 in MS land, all be it for the "Full" version, without IE, instead of an upgrade.

    If it hits the £99.99 then thats actually very tempting.... Why on earth they didn't announce this when they announced the prices weeks ago is beyond me.... All they did was create a totally unnecessary storm in a tea cup and have people questioning their business sense.

    Its like M$ are run by a bunch of greedy incompetents who only respond to getting bicth slapped in the media... rather than a company that knows what its product is and has a clear and concise stratergy on how to get it to market, and the ability to persuade customers to buy it.

    I think it's pretty well shown that most of the Windows revenue comes through OEM and licensing agreements with businesses, rather than the retail upgades and purchases - that's really the problem, they don't need to have a strategy on how to market to "consumers". They simply need to persuade a few big OEM's that it's best, and everyone else follws.

    On the other hand, Microsoft, if you're reading, you have a family pack sale here if it's for 3 licenses of the the FULL E edition at £99.99!

    Do it guys, even if it's just for the pre-order!
