Microsoft Windows Vista for Sale on Amazon.com

Amazon.com, the uber Web retailer, is now taking orders for Microsoft’s much anticipated—and oft delayed—operating system, Windows Vista, and it’s priced between $100 and $399.

Amazon said on its website that the software will be available for shipment on Jan. 30.

The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant has delayed Vista’s release on numerous occasions over the past couple of years, and it most recently said the enterprise version of the operating system would be available before the end of the year, and the consumer version would be released sometime in early 2007.

Prices listed on Amazon include $100 for the bare-bones upgrade to Vista, and the complete “ultimate” edition will go for $399.

Just yesterday, Microsoft “inadvertently” leaked Vista pricing details on its Canadian website.
