You know, its pathetic hearing microsoft whining about consumer anger over australian pricing.

eg, If microsoft US were selling copies of windows 7 for $100, and microsoft aus selling copies for $300, then of course australian (and NZ) consumers will be angry.

I don't care what kind of marketing trick (as MS explained) they were playing , it still feels like being ripped off.

We have been pushing behind the scenes to obtain Windows 7 Family Pack stock for New Zealand for many many months.  But we could not confirm it would happen as the decision was not ours locally to make

I knew how much you guys would appreciate being able to purchase it here, and we are very pleased to be able to offer it in NZ

If you're keen, grab a copy before they sell out

Cheers
Nathan

A bit late unfortunately as I've already upgraded at a higher cost...

Pity the message wasn't "release to NZ is unconfirmed at this stage" rather than "no, definitely not".  But oh well...

Package contains one disc with a license key that can be entered on as many as three machines.

This product includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

And how do we go about purchasing it as a reseller?
Ingram say they have it but only for the "retailers" as I said earlier.
Don't know what that makes us as we have a retail shop front/showroom??
