Why no reduction in the price of the Windows instances? It seems the hardware costs are the same, so it should have gone down the same amount, to $0.105/hour for small, etc.

Is it possible to lease a Linux instance, and install Windows as virtualized instance? Right now the gap between Linux and Windows is almost 50%, I would get an instance but I cant justify the price difference for myself

OS licensing comes to mind.

Unless Microsoft just raised the licensing costs, it now appears Amazon makes more money on Windows instances than Linux instances.

Corey Gilmore

What about reserved instances? Are those permanently fixed, or could we potentially see that pricing drop in the future?

Panos Ipeirotis

What about those that have bought a reserved instance? Do we get the pro-rated reduction for these instances? Or remained locked to the earlier price?
