 Playing to win long-term...

Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) slashed the price on its Windows Vista operating system in China by more than half, in a bid to lure buyers away from pirated versions of the software.

From Aug. 1, Microsoft cut its retail price for the Vista Home Basic package to CNY499 ($66) from CNY1,521, and for the Vista Home Premium package to CNY899 from CNY1802, the company said in a statement.

The reduction will allow more household customers "to enjoy the legal version of Windows Vista," Microsoft said.
