I am not condoning pirating Windows or anything, and I bought my copy during the discount upgrade period, but I had to go from Vista Ultimate down to Win7 Home Premium just because there was no way I was spending that kind of dough after being screwed on Vista Ultimate.
If Microsoft wants to reduce the pirating of their software, they should lower their prices. We are in a messed up economy and these companies are fleecing the public because they know we "need" our OS fix.
$59 was an awesome price for the upgrade.. $120 not so much. The $200+ to upgrade to Ultimate was a laugh.
My two cents.. plus interest.. carry the one...
