Take the following news with your daily dose of salt. Ars Technica had originally reported today that they have the pricing structure for Windows 7, but later pulled the story, then reposted again stating that it was from an anonymous source and "not one of our usual, trusted tipsters."
Keep in mind that Microsoft has not announced any pricing for its Windows 7 products, when we asked Microsoft about the Ars story, they told us "final decisions are still being made on details like pricing. We will be in touch when we have more to share."
The prices Ars is now reporting again, listed below, are for the full product and not the upgrade.
- Windows 7 Starter: $199
- Windows 7 Home Premium: $259
- Windows 7 Professional: $299
- Windows 7 Ultimate: $319
