Windows 7 Family Pack to cover three machines for a measly $150

If you weren't impressed by the prices Microsoft released for Windows 7 the other day, maybe this news will get you a little more excited.

The Family Pack - which includes Windows 7 Home Premium licenses for three systems - is going to retail for $149.99 in the US. That'll save you a little more than $200. The pack is slated to go on sale on October 22nd.

Details for the Anytime Upgrades have also been released, and they break down as follows:
Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Home Premium: $79.99
Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional: $89.99
Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate:
$139.99
If you do, in fact, wind up with a netbook that has been saddled with the feature-reduced Starter Edition, $80 seems like a reasonable price to pay for the upgrade. And I can't see any of my business customers complaining about $90 to convert a Home Premium system to the domain-ready Professional edition.

Anytime upgrades will be available in the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the US.
