Blighty Vista "overcharging" attacked

everything is more expensive to buy in the uk compared to USA, why should vista be any different!

we have been getting ripped off for years
Not just Microsoft's fault on this... Because the EU decided to sue MS for anti competetive behaviour, MS has been forced to make EU specific changes to the Vista OS, therefore the European editions of Vista will obviously cost more.

Having said that it does seem over priced just for some flashy effects that you can achive in XP and the 'Vista only' DirectX 10.
If you are looking for a cheap Vista, I bought my Vista Home Premium for £80 or so (cant remember exactly) from I agree its a rip off from other places but I did a search and got mine at a good price
