    I remember MS saying that they will put win7 price atleast 15% lower than vista's price. now, vista home premium price is 6k for retail version that that of win7 is 7k+tax. That's ridiculous.

    This is bull$h1t. These prices are just too much as usual. If M$ sells W7 Ultimate @ 5k and the others at 1k and 2k or so, then it would sell like hot cakes. No wonder Windows Vista retail copies were always in stock for the last 2 years.

    I will purchase this one but thanks to the idiotic MS pricing, I need to save some cash to purchase this as I was expecting it to be more like a sub 5k product (7 home premium). and i don't want to purchase OEM.

    I was planning to buy Win7, but I think now I have to "get" it...


    b/w, guys let me tell you my usage, plz recommend me the proper version that I should look for if I buy,

    -->Movie watching
    -->Gaming (would d games released till now run in Win7?)
    -->D/L(well, it does not depend on os I guess)
    -->Video editing, Encoding ( once in a blue moon, but I would need them for sure)

    It seems, Home Premium is good for me, what do u guys say? Do I need Professional?

    And, what is that "Advanced File Management" thing mentioned here?

    rates too high, i think home edition should be around Rs 500/- , in that case i can dual boot my pc with genuine windows 7 + ubuntu.
    or now ubuntu is better than using pirated windows

    The Price of W7 Pro is too high.. I was expecting it to be sub 9K. I think MS is trying to push people going for Pro to Ultimate. With only bitlock encryption only useful added advantage over Pro.!!

    Why don't you guys go for Upgrade edition? They are nothing but retails editions anyway.
