Update: This offer is not longer available. ACM has clearly mentioned that their catalog does not contain Windows 7. You can still get Windows 7 for $29.99 directly from Microsoft.
If you are fretting at the Windows 7 pricing here is some good news, albeit only if you are a student.
Microsoft has always buttered up students by lowering prices of products to an affordable level to them. Microsoft has done this for many products in the past including Microsoft Office.
But this offers definitely blows everything away, if you are student you can get your hands on Windows 7 professional for a mere $19. To do that you will have to become a member of Association for Computing Machinery which will cost $19.
Once you are a member you will get access to the MSDN Academic Alliance from where you can download 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 in several language. In all you get access to 8 Windows 7 product keys.
However ACM only avails membership to students, so if you are a high-school or undergraduate student this is a great chance to get a excellent operating system for next to nothing.
For all the others go and find someone who is a student :-).
