This seems as good a time as any to try and summarize the impact of Windows 7 E getting EUthanized. Without the Europe-specific browserless version clouding things up, Microsoft was freed to offer in-place upgrades to current Vista users, and it has sagely done exactly that. The October 22 release date will see both full and upgrade versions available on European shelves, and the UK Home Premium upgrade has been priced at £79.99 (MSRP), which is set to jump to £99.99 on January 1. If you're quick, you can currently pre-order the full version for the lower price from the MS online store. The Family Pack option also makes a welcome appearance, costing £149.99 to upgrade three machines, but it too will be a limited time offer.
