    Windows Vista UK Pricing

    Check out the price over here in the UK.

    In the US: $399

    In the UK: 325 ($610)

    Its so expensive they even offer finance terms

    The word "shafted" springs to mind.

    You know they are doing this because the EU screwed them in the past.

    Don't screw with Bill, and he'll keep the price low. But when they get sued, and have to pay, then so do a lot of users..

    There is nothing to stop you buying from amazon.com in the US, I often buy stuff from them.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
