Windows 7 Family Pack is Now Back for Sale

If you cursed the day that you weren't able to pick up a trio of Windows 7 licenses to upgrade your home computers, then hopefully this news finds you at a better time.

Microsoft has now brought back the Windows 7 Family Pack back, once again only "while supplies last." We're not sure why Microsoft would want to put a cap on the number of people wanting to upgrade as many computers as possible to Windows 7, but that's the business plan for Microsoft.

Just like the offering last year the Windows 7 Family Pack contains three Windows 7 Home Premium upgrades for $149.99.

The new offer is now available in stores and from Microsoft online in the U.S. Other countries will get theirs starting October 22.

Countries where Family Pack will be available are:

United States, Canada, UK, France, Germany, China, Russia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Slovakia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Australia, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Romania, and Ukraine.

  • No Japan either. Seems software companies want to keep punishing us expats for moving out here. Most likely they are working out how to double the price for Japan as the normal premium on English software.
  • Great deal, but don't ever call for support on license problems, moving licenses, etc. Their phone support people can only understand (one code == one license) and will tell you your product code is invalid. Hours of phone run-around.

    They might be better off just opening up volume licensing to consumers.

    Nothing. And you just need 1 pirate per household.

    I wouldn't mind having this except using non-upgrades. I know it'd be less useful for most people, but new computers + XP on the old ones could save me a decent amount of money.
