A month or so ago rumors hit the streets (or “cyber space” if we want to be anally retentive correct) about a family pack version of Windows 7. A week ago these rumors were confirmed by Brandon LeBlanc at WindowsSteamBlog [1]. He let us know that Microsoft does in fact plan to sell a 3 user license Windows 7 Home Premium package. Now he has provided us with more details [2] about this juicy offer:

The Windows 7 Family Pack will be available starting on October 22nd until supplies last here in the US and other select markets. In the US, the price for the Windows 7 Family Pack will be $149.99 for 3 Windows 7 Home Premium licenses.

Now he did not elaborate on if these are “upgrade to Windows 7″ licenses or “no-need-for-previous Windows installation” licenses (yes I know the “upgrade” licenses can be used for clean installs but I am speaking from a legal stand point). However he did mention the family pack offers a saving of $200 so I assume they are “upgrade to Windows 7″ licenses.

For anyone that did not cash in on the $50 preorder offer of Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade this is a chance to redeem yourself (*cough* Ashraf *cough*). For those that did cash in on the offer and still need more Windows 7 Home Premiums… make sure you have $150 (+ tax if applicable) in the bank when October 22nd comes around. However please note this family pack will not be available everywhere – only in “select markets” as stated above.

Enjoy (kind of)!
