Default 50% off Windows 7

If you pre-order Windows 7 (upgrade only) from Microsoft or one of their retailers between tomorrow (June 26th) and July 11th, you can save 50% off the regular price.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/buy...pre-order.aspx

$49 for Home Premium, $99 for Professional (US)
$65 in Canada (of course) for Home Premium, $125 for Professional

I'm considering pre-ordering Home Premium to save, the upgrade pricing for Canada for Windows 7 Home Premium is $130 so that's $65 off.

Is Windows 7 reliable though? I don't know much about it - I haven't tried the beta versions. I know my laptop can run it (currently on Vista Home Premium) but I don't know if being an early adopter is a good thing after my incidents with buying this laptop right after the release of Vista and the load of bugs I had to deal with.

The upgrade is from Vista only.

Edit: I stand corrected...XP and Vista.

If you have the rc, hold out a little longer. We may get it at a greater discount than those who upgrade from vista.
