Windows Microsoft has been very protective over its OEM pricing, and while various figures float around the web, the company has never really confirmed or denied any of them. At the Jefferies Annual Technology Conference, however, Charles Songhurst, general manager of Corporate Strategy, revealed some of the pricing details for OEMs.

Strange pricing structure?

I have never seen the price of OEM software fluctuate with the price of hardware before. Is this common?

I thought OEM software pricing was based on volume, not actual retail price. Although it must be elegant for MS to just say to OEM builders, 'give me 5% of your PC hardware revenue'.
