Vista Logo We have all been wanting to know what Microsoft is going to charge for Vista and Office 2007 but they said they weren’t going to release their pricelist until later this year. Well, a sneaky person over in the Neowin forums found out that they already have the software on Microsoft’s Canadian Pricelist Web site. I guess the cost may not be the same as the United States but it will probably be close.




I have taken the liberty of converting the currency to U.S. dollars:

Vista:

  • Vista Home Basic Upgrade – $116
  • Vista Home Premium Upgrade – $179
  • Vista Business Upgrade – $225
  • Vista Home Basic – $234
  • Vista Home Premium – $270
  • Vista Ultimate Upgrade – $270
  • Vista Business – $342
  • Vista Ultimate – $450

Office 2007:

  • OneNote 2007 – $125
  • Outlook 2007 – $143
  • Publisher 2007 – $225
  • Excel 2007 – $279
  • PowerPoint 2007 – $279
  • Word 2007 – $279
  • Office Small Business 2007 – $567
  • Office Pro 2007 – $685
  • Project 2007 – $798
  • Office Ultimate 2007 – $811

There you have it…a nice estimate of what Microsoft flagship products will run you if you want to play with the latest software. I’m sure some of the prices will be rounded a little nicer but they sound reasonable accurate. I could definitely see this being the most pirated version of Windows and Office yet!
