ZDNet: Seven perfectly legal ways to get Windows 7 cheap (or even free)

Fantastic piece by my ZDNet blogging colleague Ed Bott on how you can legally pick up cheap (and even free) copies of Windows 7.

Only suckers pay retail.

If you’ve read any reviews of Windows 7, you’ve seen references to its price list, which ranges from $120 for a Home Premium upgrade to $320 for a fully licensed copy of Windows 7 Ultimate.

Well, guess what? You don’t have to pay that much. Most people have much better options available, if you know where to look.

In this piece Ed examines upgrade offers, deal for students, and subscription services.

A great piece that can save you a lot of money when buying Windows 7.

And Ed's right, only suckers pay retail!
