Windows Vista May Cost an Arm and a Leg

Not only have we been waiting, and waiting for Windows Vista to hit the stores, there's info that lead me to believe upgrading to Windows Vista Ultimate edition would cost roughly $449USD and 449 CAD.  Wow!  Now this could be incorrect since the prices did become available through a fluke in the Microsoft Canada Page.  Lets all hope that these prices will drop "some" as it gets closer to launch.
