Microsoft really did to itself by overpricing its operating system software. I personally now have my OEM windows XP on one of mymachines, however the rest of my computers are running Linux UBUNTU, very user friendly, free, and thanks to a plugin named wine...windows software compatible OS. Also microsoft aimed too high with vista when they set out its requirement, why would i need a DirectX 10 card to run an OS...games...3DS and Archicad i get but an OS, plus multiple issues still plague vista's performance as OEM on notebooks. I would not pay 1000 Riyals to go buy MS office when i can download Openoffice for windows free of charge. microsoft needs to reconsider their whole pricing system in order to get business going again.
