UK - stiffed again

I read on PC Pro's website today that students are going to be able to get a copy of Windows 7 for only £30. Not a bad bargain I suppose.

The deal is available in the States too of course, where students will pay the princley sum of $30 (or $29.99 to be precise).

Now I've moaned about this before, but who's kidding who here. Whichever way you look at it $30 is not the same as £30, even taking into account anything you want to. As I write, $30 comes in at £18.16p, or the other way round £30 equates to $49.55.

Do they (whoever they are) think we're stupid? I guess so.
