The popular Windows 7 Family Pack from Microsoft, which gets you 3 licenses of Windows 7 Home Premium for under $150, has been rumored to be discontinued as of December 31st. This information comes from the Amazon site, telling would be buyers of the bundle that the availablity would be until December 31st, 2010 or until supplies last. Microsoft came under fire last year when it took the 3 pack off the shelves without warning. Let’s hope that it doesn’t suffer the same wrath as last year. This promotion has been extremely popular with many people wanting to save some serious cash when upgrading their home PC’s to Windows 7.
The bundle is currently sitting at #8 in the top software purchases on the Amazon site, behind Microsoft Office 2010, TurboTax, PhotoShop Elements, among others. Whether or not Amazon’s crystal ball is going to be true or not and the Family Pack is going to end it’s 13 week long availability is yet to be known. But, we don’t have much time to wait to see if it is true. So, if you are sitting on the fence this Christmas season now might be the time to finally make the decision and buy it while there is still time!
