Microsoft made Windows 7 generally available to the public on October 22nd, 2009, and concomitantly unveiled a variety of special offerings focused on the latest iteration of the Windows client. For a limited period of time, customers in select markets around the world will be able to buy Windows 7 at discounted prices. There are special deals that last more than others, and some offer more compared to alternatives from the company, but users do have quite a few choices when it comes down to taking advantage of what the software giant is offering to celebrate the official launch of Windows 7.

One example is the Windows 7 Student Offer. "If you are a student (an .edu email address is required), you can upgrade to Windows 7 at the LOWEST PRICE offered, $29.99 in the U.S. This offer runs through January 3rd, 2010 for US, Canada, France, Germany, Korea, Mexico and UK and March 31st, 2010 for Australia," stated Brandon LeBlanc, Windows communications manager on the Windows Client Communications Team.

One example of a special offering for which customers should hurry up is the Windows 7 Family Pack. Microsoft informed that the Windows 7 Family Pack would be available only while supplies last. With the Family Pack, users will be able to buy no less than three licenses of Windows 7 Home Premium for just $149.99.

"The Windows 7 Family Pack is available in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Germany, UK, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Luxembourg, Sweden. One of my favorite features in Windows 7 today is HomeGroup. And with the Windows 7 Family Pack, you can truly take advantage of this feature for easy sharing of your music, pictures, video, and document libraries with the Windows 7 PCs in your home, as well as your Xbox 360," LeBlanc added.

For users of a new computer preinstalled with Windows 7, Microsoft is also offering a discounted upgrade for another machine. This is valid for new OEM machines that ship with Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate, qualifying users in Germany, UK, Czech Republic, Greece, Slovakia, Poland, Latvia, Hungary, U.S., Canada, Denmark, France, New Zealand, Australia for a discounted copy of Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate. This offering will be available until January 2nd, 2010.

The ""7 Days of Windows 7" offers are available in the U.S. only (other countries have specific deals as well). Tomorrow is Day 1 and those offers will include: Best Buy Bundle: HP Laptop, Desktop PC with monitor, Netbook, wireless router and set-up by Geek Squad for $1,199. For the price of one average Mac, you can outfit your entire family with 3 great Windows 7 PCs and a home network! Dell: Save more than $100 on a Dell Studio XPS13. Gateway: All-in-one Acer Gateway ZX6800 23" for $899," LeBlanc added.
