Windows So, I guess Apple set a trend three years ago when it announced the $29 pricing for Snow Leopard (insert patent joke here). Microsoft has just announced the upgrade pricing for Windows 8 Pro - and it's good. Every Windows XP, Vista, and 7 install, no matter the version, is eligible for an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro (download version) for just $39.99. The fine print: this offer only runs until January 31, 2013.

Downgrade right to Win7 Pro?

Does the Pro Version come with a downgrade right to Win7?

Im still in charge of a fleet (~30) XP machines, needing an upgrade to Win7 soon. 40€ a pop for Win7 sounds ok, though I am not interessted in Win8 at all.

Changing Win7 to look like WinXP Classic = Win2k is already enough efford, with Win8 it is probably impossible.
