Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

Apple's $30 price is an upgrade price

Apple does not allow a user to install OS X on any hardware that did not have a previous version of Apple's OS on it at some time in the past. So all retail sales of OSX are effectively "upgrade" versions, and priced at "upgrade" prices.
