Microsoft confirms Windows 7 Family Pack rumours

Microsoft confirmed the existence of a Windows 7 family pack today in a company blog post.

Rumours of a Family Pack deal were originally reported by Neowin earlier this month. The Windows 7 family pack will offer a licence for people to install Windows Home Premium on up to 3 PCs.

Brandon LeBlanc confirmed "I know there have been some rumors going around about a "family pack" for Windows 7. We have heard a lot of feedback from beta testers and enthusiasts over the last 3 years that we need a better solution for homes with multiple PCs. I'm happy to confirm that we will indeed be offering a family pack of Windows 7 Home Premium (in select markets) which will allow installation on up to 3 PCs. As I've said before, stay tuned to our blog for more information on this and any other potential offers."

Prices leaked out earlier this month, pricing the product at $136.95. It's not yet clear if the price leaks were accurate but it seems Microsoft will be sharing this information soon.
