Microsoft Drops Prices On Some Variants of Vista

Vista logoHuh? Microsoft has pulled an unprecedented move by dropping the prices on a couple of variants of the Vista operating system. Vista Ultimate will drop from $399 to $319. The Vista Ultimate upgrade drops from $259 to $219. Vista Home Premium upgrade will drop from $159 to $129. Given that there really has been no real “ultimate” in Vista Ultimate, I guess on some level this makes some sense to somebody, but in the end retail customers will get an opportunity to save some money.
