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.

Not worth -$40

I get free copies of Windows through work and I won't be installing this crap. You couldn't pay me $40 to install it.

Windows 7 is the next XP. Windows 8 will be usable by SP1 but like Vista no one will care. The only upside is that Ballmer and Sinofsky will be gone.
