Microsoft today announced the U.S. prices for Windows Vista:
The software maker set the retail price for Vista at between $199 to $399, ranging from the basic version to the top-end "ultimate" edition. For customers upgrading from Windows XP, Vista will cost between $100 and $259.

Microsoft released on Friday a test version of Windows, dubbed Release Candidate 1, and made it available to more than 5 million customers worldwide.

Goldman Sachs analyst Rick Sherlund said the initial feedback on the test version of Vista is encouraging.

Highway robbery pure and simple. No reason to upgrade from XP, not at that price. Who would bother? Fools who are easily parted with their money are the only ones I can think of.
