Didn't stay up long though! Think I'll be sticking with XP for awhile longer yet! TC.

Float a high price - Get it discussed - "All publicity is good publicity, especially when it's free" - Allow the public to persuade you to drop your prices - Launch product

Result: The Public is happy with lower price which may easily be higher than you could have achieved had you launched it cold.

MS Canada have taken it off their website!
Think it could be time to switch to Linux.

Would appear that Vista (with latest patches) will be available September onwards, on the Canadian and North American markets. At the prices being quoted, I would think quite a number of people will remain loyal to XP or similar operating systems for the time being.

If interested, you can download a pre-release RC1 copy of Vista for evaluation. You are requested to let MS know of any bugs found in the OS. TC.
