Microsoft kills $150 Windows 7 Family Pack deal



Computerworld - Microsoft yanked its $150 Windows 7 Family Pack from the U.S. market last week, saying that the limited time offer had expired.

The page dedicated to the Family Pack now reads: “Thank you for your interest in Windows 7. The Windows 7 Family Pack offer has ended.”

Some sellers have taken advantage of Family Pack’s disappearance to jack up prices of their remaining copies of the three-PC upgrade by as much as 90%.




Microsoft seems incapable of sustaining interest in their products through reasonable pricing.

Personally I think they have a bullseye painted on their foot, and they keep shooting.
