I'm sure it will be on sale at all the big box retailers, staples and so on.

Can also order online from Microsoft and they will ship it to you.

Canadians getting ripped off again?

The Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Family Pack cannot be found on the Canadian MS site. On the US site, it's listed for $150 with a free router. They won't ship to Canada. The Canadian site only lists single license upgrades. Even worse, a popular US reseller lists it at $125 but will not ship this product to Canada. The Canadian counterpart has no stock but an enterprising third party has it listed at $296. WTF?!?!?! Thanks MS. You just made my day...terrible. :(

Costco has them for a good price.
Is it still good after paying $50 to join? I don't see it on the Costco web site.

For the Windoze 3 pack, is it an upgrade for people using XP or only Vista? Have 3 PC's at home and would like to upgrade all 3 for a reasonable price.

I ended up picking it up at Costco. They beat the best Canadian online price I could find so it's a fair deal. We were overdue for a membership renewal anyway.

is it an upgrade for people using XP or only Vista?
Both. Win7 on an XP system requires a clean install but the upgrade version recognizes XP as a valid upgrade O/S. Vista can be upgraded in place to retain settings.

* System Requirements
Take these with a grain of salt. The O/S will run with those but applications will at least double CPU and RAM requirements.

* Optical Drive
Not Applicable
Good luck installing from a DVD disc with no optical drive. :confused:
