Vista Pricing Official September 6, 2006

Posted by Patricio in Software Engineering.

The Windows Vista Enterprise edition is only available to Microsoft Volume License customers, so it has no retail price. Windows Vista Business, which fills the slot for Windows XP Professional, will retail for $299.00 for the full version and $199 for the upgrade.

For the home user, there are three choices. The stripped-down Vista Home Basic will sell for $199 for the full package or $99 for the upgrade. Vista Home Premium, the closest thing to Windows XP Home Edition, will be $239.00 for the full version or $159.00 for the upgrade.

Finally, there’s Vista Ultimate, which combines the features of Home Premium and Business, for a hefty $399.00 for the full edition or $259.00 for the upgrade.

RC1 was released to technical customers on TechNet last Friday, but Microsoft plans to offer it to a wider audience later this week through its Vista Customer Preview Program (CPP), which was used to test Beta 2. Microsoft plans to make RC1 available to more than five million customers for testing.
