    I don't know them. I remember reading that it was stupid expensive.

    Can anyone give us the prices?

    What is going through my head is this. I saw that Microsoft has a plan (can be found through Newegg) that if you purchase a copy of WXP then you get an upgrade to Vista for like $20.

    If Vista is priced as expensively as I am thinking it is then this would be like a 50% discount.

    64 bit pro is the same price.

    To get oem software, you need to buy it with a piece of hardware, like a hard drive, ram or cpu.

    I understand OEM. What I am looking for is the pricing of Vista itself.

    Cause I am thinking that this is so good a deal that I would be a fool to pass it up.

    Can anyone verify what the pricing of Vista will be?
