Update 2010/11/29: NOTE: Low stock is being reported on the Amazon website (approx 50 40 units are available). We expect this offer to end this weekend (Black Friday / Cyber Monday), so don't wait!

Microsoft has officially re-introduced its Windows 7 Family Pack, a limited-time offer that drastically reduces the price of licenses for the new operating system (OS). For less than $150, consumers can now own Windows 7 licenses for up to three independent computers.

This is not the first time Microsoft has used this offer to encourage OS upgrades amongst PC users. The Redmond-based firm employed the same strategy last year in an attempt to drum up excitement around the operating system's October 22, 2009 launch.

In short, the discount worked -- sales were steady for the five-week period in which the Family Pack was offered.

Windows 7 Family Pack: a Time-Limited Offer

Microsoft aroused indignation amongst consumers last year when the Family Pack ended in late November and early December, 2009. The company never laid a formal deadline for the offer, and so many potential adopters were frustrated to find their procrastination had left them high and dry when prices returned to normal.

Microsoft has yet again refused to cement an end date to this round of Family Pack price reductions, meaning the early bird catches the worm. In fact, the company went only so far as to state that the Family Pack deal will be available "while supplies last."

The deal is part of Microsoft's attempt to increase Windows 7's adoption rate in an age when, according to tech analysts NetApplications, decade-old Windows XP still counts for as much as 66 per cent of all Windows systems used online. (Source:
