  Taiwan-Microsoft deal on prices could 'snowball'
Time: 13:47 EST/18:47 GMT | News Source: Seattle Times | Posted By: Bill Roach

Microsoft's agreement to offer promotional prices to end a Taiwan Fair Trade Commission investigation will lead other governments to press for lower prices, analysts said. "This is very likely to snowball," said Rob Enderle, an analyst at market researcher Giga Information Group. "Clearly, other governments will look and say, 'We should do something similar.' " Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, said late Wednesday that it will begin offering the promotions in Taiwan on March 15. Spokesman Jim Desler declined to comment on the specific price or the end date. The commission said in a statement that prices will be lower by an average of almost 27 percent.

Ofcourse it will snowball! it's the same as if your neighbor bougth a car from a dealer and told you the price. There is no way that you would pay more for the same car from that same dealer.


And to be honest I don't see this curtailing piracy. Let me see if my math makes sense

%50 off what the current price is compared to $20 (from what I gather in Asia and russia you can buy this stuff dirt cheap).


The only benefit may be as an incentive for governments and very large buyers from exloring other options. But I am sure that those guys already get deep discounts anyway.

Actually, it would be curious to know how much they sell say Windows XP for in Taiwan. If it's cheaper than in the US, I'll order the Taiwanese version.

Richteralan, that is interesting. I hear stories of dirty cheap CDs in Asia and Russia. My friend in Malaysia says that is the case. I can get dinner, 2 hookers (good quality) and Windows XP for like $75 (usd) and if I bargain SQL2000.


:P

Is it just me or is m00zilla's post full of pure and absoltely senseless babble? It doesn't make any sense at all.

Am I missing something?

#7, after paying $75 for dinner, 2 hookers (good quality) and Windows XP wouldn't you talk nonsense like m00zilla's ?

Richt must not be visiting the right rinoks (or perhaps he's never been to Russia). It's actually quite a difficult thing to find legit software over there. As for $20....the going price for a Windows OS used to be about $3. Now that DVD burners are becoming mainstream, I'd bet that an OS, Office, Enterprise Servers, and Dev Tools disk will retail (errr pirate-tail) for under $20.

RE m00zilla: "It's a mad cow. Those Brittish bovines, don't invite 'em to your cookout...." I've got a great cow wink for any of you 3degrees users. :-)

This is good. The world needs more snowballs.

"So..you guys talking abour Pirated price, right? "

I think we were talking about hookers.

#15 - Ok, then I guess we talk about software.
