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.

Win2k was actually quite a good workstation/server OS.
And WinXP had some difficult early years.

But yes there's an up and down trend at work here.
Like MS is playing rodeo with its customers: "Get... off.. our back already!!"
