Windows 7 Pre-Order Offer

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Windows 7 will be released on October 22, 2009. For early adopters, Microsoft is offering a special pre-order offer: Pre-order a Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade for $49 or a Windows 7 Professional Upgrade for $99. That’s roughly half off the retail prices that will be charged when the OS hits the shelves.  This offer applies to anyone currently running a genuine (legal) version of Windows XP or Vista of any type for the prices listed.  This means that you do not have to have Windows XP Professional or Windows Vista Business to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional.  Any upgrade path is supported.If you are interested in this offer, take a look at the Windows 7 Pre-Order Offer page and follow the instructions.  There is a list of retailers at the bottom of the page that are participating in this promotion.  Personally, I would recommend purchasing from or as they are online only stores and do not charge sales tax.  Every little bit helps.

Please make sure you read the FAQ and also note that there is a three copy limit for each version.  I doubt that will be a problem for most of us.  This offer expires on July 11th, 2009 or when supplies run out.
