For anyone interested Microsofts Windows 7 Pre-Order site is up and running right now. I think it's only for North American users though. US residents can get discs sent to them for a nominal price, but for the rest of us it's the digital download only. Of note, there is a 58% discount for pre-orders of the upgrade edition of Windows 7 Home Premium ($49.99 instead of $119.99), and a 50% discount for the upgrade version of Windows 7 Professional ($99.99 instead of $199.99). Edit: I guess I should have gone a bit further as their store doesn't allow for Canadian billing address even if it is for a digital download. Oh well. Anyways, in the top right corner of their site there is a drop down box for changing countries. The reason I mention this is that each country seems to be getting different deals for Windows 7. If you live in Europe they have a deal that if you buy any version of Windows Vista you will get the equivalent version of Windows 7 for free. Not an upgrade version either, but a full version. Very sweet deal if you ask me.
