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.

I other cases I would have picked up a license just because $39.99 is so cheap. But since i think W8 is such a bad OS i wonder if it's worth even that. If they where handing out licenses for free I would probably get one just to play around with.
