I’m currently looking to upgrade to Windows 7 from Vista Ultimate so I decided to see how much the upgrade was going to cost. Going to the Windows site I wasn’t really surprised with what I saw…
I knew it was going to be in the £100+ market but figuring it’d probably be cheaper than normal considering I’m “upgrading” from a not entirley different OS and because I’m downloading it (no shipping/packaging/importing/printing)
I remember there being some chaos when Vista was released because they were charging the UK way more than the US and the above list was their reason for the price hike. So I decided to take a look at the upgrade+download price for Windows 7 US, expecting it to be more in line this time around.
I couldn’t fucking believe it… I know the pound is in pretty bad shape but its not that bad… I know… I checked…
So I’d expect the UK version to maybe be a little higher than the US version… £140? £150? Jeez I’d be happy to pay. What I can’t understand is a 50% increase in fucking price to send our version a little further over the Internet, I seriously can’t, its the fucking Internet! Same language as the US version, I bet the differences are fucking minimal at best to be honest so if someone can shead some light on this bleak piece of marketing genius from Microsoft, be my fucking guest.
fuck count = 5 or 6 depending if you count that fuck…. and that one….
I know a lot of people who refuse to watch a movie simply because it has subtitles. They have no idea what they are missing. Some of the best movies I’ve seen in the past few years come from outside America. Their ignorance drives me nuts.
so fucking true.
I presume most of those people are American and idiots.
