Default MS booboo - Vista prices posted and removed

I thought this was just flat-out funny. MS accidentally posted the prices for Vista, but someone got them before MS took them down. They are Canadian, but the conversion ain't that hard.

I dont really think MS does anything by accident, just like when everyone thought the Beta relase was an accident, it creates hype and gets ppl talking about a product for years before its even released so no one forgets that they are there.
