Windows 7's Price May Be A Barrier For Adoption

Windows 7′s inflated prices may still be a stumbling block for adoption once the new operating system is officially released this holiday season, according to a CNET interview with an executive at computer manufacturer Dell. We still haven’t heard any definitive pricing for Windows 7 yet, and even though the CNET article points to prices that “are higher than they were for Vista and XP,” we just can’t imagine Microsoft would be so bold—both in this economy and after the mostly negative response to Vista. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. [CNET]
