Sweetener offered to customers that already bought three licenses.

Microsoft has released what it is calling a "limited pilot" for Windows 7 where it packages three licenses for the Home Premium Upgrade edition of its latest operating system for $249.

The Windows 7 Family Pack will be available at retailers Betta Electrical, Bing Lee, David Jones, Dick Smith, Harvey Norman, JB Hi Fi, Myer, Officeworks, Retravision, The Good Guys and WOW Sight and Sound.

Microsoft said that customers who had already purchased three upgrade licenses prior to today might be eligible for some freebies.

It said they would get three wireless comfort desktops consisting of a wireless mouse and keyboard set.

To be eligible, they would need to show "a single receipt showing the purchase of three Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade licenses in a single transaction or up to three receipts showing the purchase of separate Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade licenses that were transacted on the same credit card", Microsoft said.

"We listened to the feedback from our customers and we are very pleased to announce that we are piloting Family Pack in Australia as part of our Christmas offers," said Jeff Putt, Windows consumer lead at Microsoft Australia.
