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.

Umm yeah ...

When I bought Windows 7 (family pack at costco), and went to upgrade to ultimate, Microsoft's credit card processor was offline for months. I never tried again since then..

... I wonder if microsoft is using a decent processor or not to allow these orders to happen ...
