apparently ms has cut the price in february by 20% but cannot find a store that knows about it.

I think it's a roll out starting in the USA.

spoke to microsoft sales this morning to confirm the price reduction that they mentioned back in february this year when they said vista with sp1 included would be reduced.

spoke to an american sounding lady not sure if i had been diverted to the USA or not but it was like speaking to a robot, she could not grasp that vista dvds are now on sale with sp1 included, nor could see grasp the point are microsoft still going ahead with discounts or not, this woman had three standard answers [sp1 can be downloaded on liveupdate, we have free support, and we are not selling sp1 its a free download]i might as well have spoken to an animated machine, she spoke english but the experience was worse than an indian call centre.

I might try later to see if i can get someone else.
