Microsoft Shows Official Windows 7 Box Art

Last month, Polish website CentrumXP posted several box shots of Windows 7. We weren’t sure if they were just mockups or just very exclusive and early leaks – but it turns out that they were on the money.

On Microsoft’s Store is a preview page for Windows 7. While pricing remains a mystery, it seems that the boxes will look something like this:

What do you think of Microsoft's multiple SKUs of Windows 7? Do you think Microsoft should just sell one consumer version of Windows for one flat price?

    I'm getting the OEM - don't care about box art or manuals. Just want the CD and a key and I'm good to go.

    as long as they keep the versions down to say 3 maximum...maybe 4th for netbook/notebook version...

    i don't mind different versions for business, home use, and premium...

    but when there are 32 different versions, then it's just sad....

    starrymanWhere's the illustration on the box where M$ says "F - YOU" to all of the current Vista users.


    You know you'll probably be able to buy an upgrade version of Windows 7 for a fairly reduced price. Probably be less than $100.

    Vista isn't that bad anyways, at least not now.

    Absolutely not. At least this constitutes a minimum freedom of choice.

    Are they going to use the same 'boxes' they did with Retail Vista? It is pretty sad that M$ didn't even work the bugs out of their freggin BOX!

    How many people here got frustrated trying to figure that dang thing out?
