not sure why people vote cold. this is the Pro version (incl. backup and can be joined to a domain) not the Home
(note: Pro more geared towards businesses)
#2
Possibly cold as this has been posted several times now?

And this doesn't?

This site will have links to anywhere still doing pre-orders for both versions of 7E at the cheaper prices:

This is a good price for the Pro version. Wont stay like that for long tho as they only have limited stocks for all versions for pre order. Amazon was selling Home for £45 for only 2 days and its now gone to the 'new' pre order price of £75 before it goes up to the actual retail price of £99 some time in August.

If you've read this far, I'd say personally that Home is the better option as not many people will want to join their home PC to a domain and there will be better backup software out there for very little and in some cases free.

Why can't this be ordered? Direct link for HUKD doesnt take you there, and the link on Dixons brings up a list. No windows 7 available.

That's Home Edition not Professional

Wish folk would do their homework before commenting and voting cold
#15
What pre-order price policy do Dixons have though?

Different stores probably have different policies, in the absence of explicit T&Cs stating a policy for all we know Dixons could be selling ALL of their allocated stock at the same price, and then jacking the pre-order prices up to the "correct" RRP when it comes to them ordering it from their supplier.

You have to admire Microsoft in a grudging sort of way. They bring out Vista and don't get it to work properly until SP1, they make it even better with SP2 but people still remember the original problems and continue to deride it. So MS make it look a little different and sell it as Windows 7.

Result – the masses give praise to the great Microsoft and get out their credit cards again.

7 is completely different. you're a bti mixed up mate -it looks the same as vista but is built upon an entirely new foundation -hence why you cant do a direct upgrade and need a fresh install.

Actually that's not quite true. There is an upgrade path from Vista, but because of EU regulations regarding Internet Explorer not being forced on users MS aren't allowed to sell the upgrade version in Europe.

You're right about 7 in general though - by all accounts it's a massive improvement on Vista, even if it does look similar.

If you want the Home copy Staples still have it at £49.98, you can add a free electric screwdrived set and 4% cashback

This is not true. 7 is built on Vista hence why most software and drives are compatible with no or little change. Microsoft have however tinckered with almost every part of the OS but the foundation is most certainly Vista.

Microsoft have pulled this deal, back to full price.

Is it really worth getting the pro over premium version? Cant justify it myself even though I would like the XP addon.

You probably don't want Professional, its geared towards businesses.

Home users ideally want one of the Home versions, or Ultimate.

People should really look up the differences in these versions of Windows before buying.

Having said this, I ran off Vista Business for years fine at home. Lacked the home stuff, but did everything I needed it too. I have Home Premium Vista on my laptop and never noticed the differences! Though I am not inclined to use Media Centre and such.

Anyway, I have been running Windows 7 for sometime now. Brilliant OS.

Although you’re completely wrong, you’re far from being alone.

It’s this sort of misunderstanding that makes “the masses give praise to the great Microsoft and get out their credit cards again”.
