Amazon's leaked pricing holds up

Last week, leaked pricing for 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):

  • Windows Vista Home Basic, $199/$99.95
  • Windows Vista Home Premium, $239/$159
  • Windows Vista Business, $299/$199
  • Windows Vista Ultimate, $399/$259

Microsoft didn't elaborate on Amazon's suggested ship date of January 30, but simply stated that volume license customers would receive the OS in November while general public availability will be in January of 2007.

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.

At the moment it's only included with x64 version. 32-bit Vista is smooth enough, no need for extra lubricants.
