Alongside the RTM release date information (already posted here), the Windows Team Blog also confirms the existance of the long rumoured Windows 7 Family Pack:

I know there have been some rumors going around about a “family pack” for Windows 7. We have heard a lot of feedback from beta testers and enthusiasts over the last 3 years that we need a better solution for homes with multiple PCs. I’m happy to confirm that we will indeed be offering a family pack of Windows 7 Home Premium (in select markets) which will allow installation on up to 3 PCs. As I’ve said before, stay tuned to our blog for more information on this and any other potential offers.
The rest of the blog post is worth a read too:

As soon as any more info appears, I will post it here.

Pricing information conspicuously missing from that blog post.

I'd bet it's going to be full price of whatever version you're looking for x3. No deal to speak of.

But I lose most bets I make so if you wanna make some EZ cash, now's yer time. :D

My bet would be there will be a discount, but it wont be much of a discount.

Some leaked info suggests that it could be $150 for Home Premium upgrade edition:

Microsoft Corp. will price a multi-license "family pack" for Windows 7 at $149.99, according to at least one online retailer that has posted pricing details prematurely.

Fadfusion.com, a Missouri-based online seller of computers, electronics and office supplies, lists something called "W7 Family Pack - Home Prem Upg" on its site for $138.99, an $11 discount from the $149.99 it claims is the package's suggested retail price.

That's not bad at all. Rather good for the multi-computer household, I'd say.

After all, a family that surfs for porn together, stays together.:D
