Microsoft's upcoming Windows Vista operating system. Today, Microsoft has
updated its Windows
Vista site with official pricing for the various versions of the operating
system. Not surprisingly, Amazon's figures were right on the money (prices listed as full/upgrade):

receive the OS in November while general public availability will be in January
On Friday, Microsoft released Windows Vista RC1
to testers. Microsoft announced today that it would be expanding the availability
of RC1 this week with the Windows
Vista Customer Preview Program (CPP). When all is said and done, Windows Vista RC1
will have been made available to over 5 million customers worldwide.
