The New Microsoft Store launches with Windows 7

You’ve read the amazing reviews and now the day is finally here.  Without a doubt, one of the biggest launches of the year is Windows 7!

It’s available for immediate purchase where you can choose to either have it shipped to you or to download it direct from Microsoft.

imageIn addition to the availability of Windows 7, I’m happy ecstatic to announce the launch of the brand new Microsoft Store, which coincides with the opening of new Microsoft retail stores.  Our first retail location opens tomorrow at 10am in Scottsdale followed by our second store in Mission Viejo on October 29th.  In fact, we already had 4 fans standing in line at 4pm earlier this afternoon in anticipation of the opening!

On the new online Microsoft Store, we’ve added a bunch of new products, including Windows 7 PCs as well as select 3rd party software and accessories.  And let’s not forget a ton of gaming products that have been added including a bunch of the top selling Xbox 360 titles.

We initially launched the online store last November, and since then we have had nearly a years worth data coming in from usability studies, web analytics and direct customer feedback.  Based on all of this data, coupled with the newly expanded product catalog, one of the biggest goals we had in this release was to simplify site navigation for our customers.  With the new site, you’ll notice a re-designed categorization, navigation and filtering system aimed to make it easier and faster to navigate as well as help you find products you want more quickly.

Go check our new store out, find information about our new retail locations, and while you’re at it, get your copy of Windows 7!

We’d love to know what you think of the new site, so drop a comment here or send me a line on Twitter.

    ARGH – Not a complete online store!!

    I sat down to re-image my just cratered laptop (XP) and thought, “Hey, if I’ve got to re-image this thing anyway I should try Win 7. I can download it from MS online store for only $120. Perfect” Then I saw the Family Pack and thought, “My wife would prefer this experience.” So I went to purchase the Family Pack and saw that it isn’t available for download. MS has decided that I’ve got to wait while till they ship me a CD. Now my choice is to either buy the lower value single install version, sit around with a dead box for days while MS ships the CD or re-image w XP right now. So here’s the deal. You’ve just frustrated me unnecessarily. I’ll stick with XP.

    John: Apologies for not having the family pack as ESD. It was definitely something we wanted to have, but unfortunately weren’t able to get integrated in time for launch. Hopefully the discounted price on it entices you to still buy it as a shipped product.
