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.

On a note unrelated to this new item, let me say that 90% of the time I try to log in I get "oops, something went wrong". Which means that most of the time I want to comment I don't. In this case, since I've tried logging in over a few minutes now, and finally made it, I no longer feel like going back over this thread and trying to remember what I wanted to comment. I'll make do with this rant. And DailyTech, please fix this problem. It's been happening for months now, and it makes me want to shoot someone.

No one else seems to be having a problem posting. I logged right in. Perhaps it's a PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair)

Logically, everyone who is capable of posting obviously managed to log in. Those who can't log in can't complain. (BTW, problems for what's between the keyboard and chair are usually solved with Viagra and the like, and I don't think that's really relevant to this matter.)
