Windows 7 at 50% off?

Hello again folks, as you know the Windows 7 launch is getting closer and closer to us. Well as of late I just saw this new offer from Microsoft.

Microsoft is offering Windows 7 at 50% off for a pre-order deal. You can go to Amazon and pre-order it now. You can also check out the offer here at Microsoft. So what’s going on you might ask?

In my opinion, Microsoft has decided to take advantage of all the buzz surrounding Windows 7 and take a much needed break from all the crap they’ve been getting about Vista. By selling Windows 7 for 50% off, they will instantly generate good will towards themselves after the Vista boondoggle. This is a smart move on their part and it should be interesting to see how this plays out.

So if you were on the fence about upgrading from Vista, let me tell you now, do it! Windows 7 is way better than Vista and the early releases I have tried have been great!
