Windows After a long wait, Microsoft has finally unveiled the pricing information for the next Windows release, Windows 7, which will arrive at the shops on October 22. Interestingly enough, Europe will get full retail copies for upgrade pricing because of the whole Windows 7 E thing not being tested when it comes to upgrades.

You can't tell me people are actually surprised by this? MSFT has a history of over-pricing their OS and Office product. That's how they make their money.

Say no to their monopoly people and turn to Linux distros once and for all.

I'm sure end users are going to be oh-so-happy when they find none of their old software they like is available on Linux or find that their hardware is either unsupported or only partially supported.

Linux will grab marketshare on the desktop/laptop the moment when the Linux world acknowledge why they don't have a larger marketshare - so far all I have heard from Linux zealots on this site, mailing lists and forums is, "its everyone elses fault except our own".
