Microsoft cuts Vista prices

Microsoft Corp. is cutting the retail price of its Windows Vista operating system by as much as 20% in the U.S., but will slash at least some versions' price tags by more than 46% in both the U.K. and the European Union.

Microsoft announced sweeping price cuts to boxed copies of Vista, saying then that the cuts would range from as low as 3% in developed countries to nearly 50% for some editions sold in poorer nations.

According to Microsoft, the price for the upgrade version of Vista Home Premium will drop 18.8% in the U.S., from $159.95 to $129.95. The full edition of Vista Ultimate, on the other hand, will be cut 20%, from $399.95 to $319.95.
