    A Bargain Price for Windows 8?

    Amazon had a pre-order price of $50 for Windows 7. Will that happen for Windows 8?

    Who knows

    ask Ms marketing

    I'd suspect if they want to push their products some sort of discount wouldn't be a bad business decision.

    However "Corporate Greed" tends to get in the way --it really is amazing how many businesses seem to think a HIGH % of ZERO money is worth more than a smaller % of SOMETHING.

    Ever had discussions with a Bank when for whatever reason you just can't pay -- they throw all sorts of threatograms / debt collectors at you in spite of the fact that most of these companies have about as much right to collect as your Grandma's cat -- and cannot understand that for reasons that might be TOTALLY outside your control -- for example jobs being off-shored, redundancy etc etc that you just CAN'T at the moment pay (not WON'T pay) -- so their scrobbity lawyers get involved and after a HUGE amount of hassle the Bank gets awarded 1 EUR per month for the next 1,000 years -- which had they been reasonable the whole thing could have been settled much quicker.

    From what I had gotten from my contact person @ Microsoft, price hasn't been set yet, and won't be for some time.

    I pre-ordered Windows 7 for $20 when I purchased a new PC with Vista SP1 about 2-3 years ago. The $20 was reduced to $0 due to a rebate though, even better .
