Microsoft Confirms Windows 7 Family Pack
The Windows 7 Family Pack is real and it's coming.
Today Microsoft confirmed all speculation. Windows communication manager Brandon LeBlanc wrote today, "I know there have been some rumors going around about a 'family pack' for Windows 7. We have heard a lot of feedback from beta testers and enthusiasts over the last 3 years that we need a better solution for homes with multiple PCs."
LeBlanc continued, "I’m happy to confirm that we will indeed be offering a family pack of Windows 7 Home Premium (in select markets) which will allow installation on up to 3 PCs."
Other than the brief confirmation, there weren't any other details released by Microsoft. This may be relief to some who decided to pass on the pre-order deal, though those who did may feel a slight sting if the price of the family pack ends up being less than $150 (the price of three Home Premium Upgrades at the discounted price).
