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.

I don't think that $50 or 5% is at all unreasonable.

What offends me is that the big boys pay so much less than the corner shops. XP Home costs me more than $100 CDN, and Vista Home Premium with a Windows 7 Upgrade is more than $145.

That is a huge competitive disadvantage for the little guys.
