If you are anxiously waiting to get your hands on the final and stable version of Windows 7, then you should know that the Windows 7 Upgrade Program Option site where you can order your free Windows 7 upgrade is up and running. You should also know that Microsoft has announced the official pricing of Windows 7, and the prices are $40 cheaper than what Vista used to cost. But what should really have you excited is the fact that Microsoft announced a 50% discount to all customers that pre-order Windows 7 now.

Windows Communications Manager, Brandon LeBlanc, explains: “As a way of saying thank you to our loyal Windows customers, we are excited to introduce a special time limited offer! We will offer people in select markets the opportunity to pre-order Windows 7 at a more than 50% discount.

You can take advantage of this special offer online via select retail partners such as Best Buy or Amazon, or the online Microsoft Store (in participating markets).”

Users in the US of A, Canada and Japan can pre-order as of today, the 26th of June. Users from the United Kingdom, France and Germany will also be able to pre-order Windows 7, but starting with the 15th of July.
