Interesting article... would this really put the focus back on M$'s recent Ad message- "we're more affordable" ?
I like it - I think that'd be brilliant !!
Don't know about $69 single copy and $99 Family pack, but you could make it $89 and $149... Compared to hundreds for Windows 7, esp. the Enterprise version. I don't even think MS offers a "Family Pack"... they did kinda under VISTA, but you had to buy the Enterprise version and they'd allow you to buy 2 more copies (3 total) for $50 more each. Than means a 3 pack was $500, compared to Apples $199 Family 5-pack.
'Snow Leopard' for $69.00 or $89.00 would be cool! And, considering that the 'edu'-version would pro'lly be $20 cheaper....Great idea!
The are some interesting reader comments....! E.g: You can't really compare the prices of the OSes since acquiring a version of OS X would require buying a new (Mac) computer (Snow Leopard is Intel only?), etc, etc.
Minimum requirements for Win7 dont look all that 'demanding' except for the HD space needed. 16/20 GB for the OS?
