Family Pack Available For Windows 7 Home Premium

Category: Operating Systems
Posted: 04:52PM

Browsing through the software license that accompanies Windows 7 Home Premium, you will come across a clause that details the terms of use for a Family Pack. This clause is only found in this version, and likely isn't mistakenly there. The Family Pack would allow the operating system to be installed on 3 computers found in the household. Speculation currently puts the Family Pack at a $190 price point, making it quite a good deal based on the current price of Windows Vista or even XP. Coupled with the recent deals available for those consumers who pre-order Windows 7, Microsoft appears to be making a push to get Windows 7 into as many households as possible.

They've done for this Office, it's about time they've done this for Windows.

That's great value, it only works out at around $63 per copy! (based on the estimated price)

It really is a great deal. I'm glad Microsoft did this, maybe it will discourage people from complaining about how expensive Windows is.

WAIT...If I pre-order the £50 Home Edition, I won't be able to install it on 3 computers??
