Microsoft bringing back three-license Windows 7 Family Pack

People were pretty excited when Microsoft officially announced the Windows 7 Family Pack, and with licenses for three machines for $150, there was good reason for that excitement. Last year, the limited run was sold out within about six weeks -- leaving a lot of potential customers in the lurch.

Don't fret! Assuming you didn't already go out and buy three licenses for your machines, you're going to get a second shot at the Pack. Yes, Microsoft is bringing back the Windows 7 Family Pack to celebrate the first anniversary of the Windows 7 launch on October 22nd.

Better news: this time, the deal will be available outside the U.S. as well. The lucky countries include Canada, the U.K., France, Germany, and Australia. Microsoft is leaving the door open a bit; other countries may still be added to the list.

As before, it's going to be a limited run, so make sure you grab a Pack as soon as you can.
