here's how I checked it out
www.microsoft. com - - click on the hot link 'Store' -- click on the hot link 'Windows'
and you get a full page ad about Win 8 with a line 'Like Windows 7 only better' with all the prices.
Hover over the hot link on the left that says 'Windows' and you get the choice of two links "Windows 8' or 'Windows 8 Pro' - nowhere in the store is there Windows 7 available for sale or download.
