Amazon to sell Vista (RED)

Previously only available preloaded onto Dell notebooks, Microsoft's version of Windows Vista branded under the Product (RED) global charity in support of AIDS research, the software by itself will begin shipping via Amazon starting on December 15th. The operating system on Dell's notebooks included six unique wallpapers, a screensaver, two sidebar gadgets and a Dreamscene, some of which are expected to be included in this standalone version as well, although Microsoft's product page indicates that two new wallpapers are included in the software.

The software is available for pre-order now, priced at nearly $220, or $20 less than Microsoft's retail price for the regular Vista Ultimate operating system, but $70 more than Amazon's sale price of the software. Students can buy the software via Microsoft's Ultimate Steal site for $65. [via iStartedSomething]
