Windows 7 Home Premium Will Have a Family Pack

Kristian Kenney finds this M&M buried inside the horrible trail mix that is the Windows 7 Home Premium End User License Agreement: there's going to be a Family Pack.

That's it. There's going to be a family pack for three users. Nobody knows what the pricing will be, but Apple's Leopard family pack pricing is $199 for five users, and Snow Leopard is $49. Only three (Mom, Dad and Junior) can use Windows 7, so theoretically it should be lower than $199. But when you look at the pricing for a standalone one-user copy of Home Premium, it's $120 for an upgrade and $200 for a full version. So somewhere between $120 and $199 for an upgrade Family Pack, and somewhere between $200 and infinity for a retail Family Pack. [Kristian Kenney via ZDNet]
