Microsoft Unveils Windows 7 Packaging

Microsoft on Wednesday released details about the packaging for its upcoming Windows 7 operating system.

Windows 7 Home Premium will come in a green package, Windows 7 Professional will have blue packaging, and Windows 7 Ultimate will be in black.

"Customers told us they liked the big bold Windows logo and how it clearly communicates that it's Windows 7," Microsoft spokesman Brandon LeBlanc wrote in a blog post. "They like larger typefaces to make it easy to read. They also like the background colors for each edition that make it easier to differentiate between Windows 7 Home Premium all the way to Windows 7 Ultimate. In their own words, the "clean" design gives off a 'fresh' feel."

Microsoft also said that packaging will make it easier to open.

"We've reduced the number of elements in the package down to three: the plastic case, the paper sleeve, and a simple Getting Started Guide," LeBlanc wrote. "The plastic case opens easily like a standard DVD case and it will have a single easy-to-remove seal at the top - and that's it."

The packaging is 37 percent lighter and reduces waste by 50 percent, Microsoft said.

Windows 7 is expected to hit store shelves by Oct. 22.
