In a statement, Bill Veghte, denied reports that European users will pay more for Windows 7 because of the company's wrangling with antitrust regulators, he said "nothing about this [case] will mean higher prices for Windows 7 in Europe." Microsoft has said it will price the full editions of Windows 7E -- the "E" stands for "Europe" -- at the lower upgrade prices until at least Dec. 31, 2009, where consumers can purchase a copy of Windows 7E for the same price as U.S. consumers upgrade edition.  Now Europe will pay less for their version of Windows 7E full edition than people in the United States Windows 7 full edition.
