it's a good price.

That is a good price for Vista, I paid £113 + VAT for Ultimate x86 OEM.

Well it did for me last night,and though my link now shows the price being £67.21 inc VAT there were at least 500 copies sold at the price I had it for.

I must have been lucky and you obviously had to be quick off the mark.

1725 in stock so if your in the market for Vista Premium OEM, grab it while you can.

many knew that it was the only way for ms to get a certain band of pc savvy users and builders to spend any money on their software.
it is better to charge a smaller amount than drive some users towards using cracked versions of vista.
this lesson has been learn't from the xp project whereby millions of users happily installed illegal copies.
logic,market forces and realistic prices seems to be the winning call for all.but it has taken a long long time for ms to wake-up to this.well done ms.
or was the vista project found to be sleeping walking through treacle?
pile it high and sell it cheap was always the american prayer.
