There are 4 different versions of Vista and all 4 have a different price
We know about Vista's many editions, but the pricing has been something of a mystery. Over the weekend, Microsoft Canada accidentally leaked details about Vista's Canadian pricing. Now Amazon has published a list of the US prices for the various Vista editions, along with a release date of January 30, 2007.

Here's the skinny on the pricing from Amazon. Keep in mind that pricing and release date are subject to change; in fact, a Microsoft spokesperson told Ars that the pricing is not set in stone.

Full versions
  • Windows Vista Home Basic: $199
  • Windows Vista Home Premium: $239
  • Windows Vista Business: $299
  • Windows Vista Ultimate: $399

Upgrade versions
  • Windows Vista Home Basic Upgrade: $99.95
  • Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade: $159
  • Windows Vista Business Upgrade: $199
  • Windows Vista Ultimate Upgrade: $359
