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.

"It still favors trashing your disk over getting actual work done, and minds his own business instead of doing what you tell it to.

What are you on about? None of this happens.

I've yet to see a single Vista computer that does not suffer performance problems. And dozens of them have passed through my hands.
Responsiveness is so bad that it makes your Core 2 Quad look like an Atom processor.


"UI still... oh, I can't even talk about that.

It is pretty much Windows Classic with a black Skin.
"
Sorry, I should have been more explicit.

There's nothing wrong with window decorations, that's just a matter of taste (though that stupid flashing progress bar really gets on my nerves).

But overall OS UI -- essentially control panels -- is a total crappy mess.
