Microsoft will sell Windows 7 Family Pack for $149.99

For families with several computer at home, Microsoft will sell Family Packs of Windows 7 for $149.99. The Family Packs will be good for three computers.

The company was expected to make the announcement this morning on its Windows 7 Team blog.

Windows 7 is expected to launch on Oct. 22.

There’s also some detailed pricing on the blog about Windows upgrade prices — not from Windows Vista or XP to Windows 7, but from cheaper versions of Windows 7 to more expensive versions of Windows 7. For instance, someone might buy a netbook with a cheaper version of Windows 7 already installed on it and want to upgrade to a version with more features.

If you are wondering whether you should upgrade to Windows 7, check out what our tech columnist, Brier Dudley, wrote about it here.
