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.

That's like saying that rotting cow carcass is a superset of steak.

Windows 8 doesn't give you the option of using the start menu or booting into the desktop.

Don't give me that Sinofsky BS about it being the same Windows. The same Windows doesn't dump all my shortcuts onto a single screen.
