If you have the need for multiple copies of Windows 7, now's the time to grab them: Microsoft is once again offering its Family Pack bundle of three Windows licences for $249, and once again screwing over Australians by only offering the deal for a "limited time".
The bundle will be available through Bing Lee, Dick Smith, The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, JB HI-FI, Officeworks and WOW Sight & Sound. A quick search didn't show it on the web sites for Dick Smith or Officeworks, which I guess is consistent with the "limited offer" BS Microsoft insists Australians swallow whenever they roll this deal out.
In the US and other markets the Family Pack is available all the time, not just on a whim or when Microsoft's local operation needs to boost its Christmas sales numbers for Redmond. The US RRP is also $149.95, proving that digital goods aren't exempt from pricing stupidity in the face of parity. Thanks yet again for treating Aussies like second-class citizens, Microsoft. Ever thought of running a TV network?
