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.

Quite, if it wasn't for Metro, 8 is just a point SP for 7. Even so, if one could turn off Metro I'd upgrade. As is, think you'd have to be perversely masochistic to do so. Really can't understand this at all.
