(MY014) watch out : u can get windows7 8% cheaper than vista


SEATTLE, June 26 — Microsoft Corp will sell the standard home-user version of its new Windows 7 operating system for 8 per cent less than the comparable version of its Vista system, as the global downturn hits spending on technology.

The world’s largest software company, whose recent ads champion low-priced PCs against more expensive Apple Inc computers, said the new system will be available at even lower prices for a short time, as it looks to tempt buyers ahead of the holiday shopping season.

The new operating system, which Microsoft hopes will be a bigger hit than the poorly received Vista, will be generally released on October 22. It will be available on pre-order from US stores such as Best Buy Co Inc (BBY.N), online retailer Inc and the company’s own website from today.
