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.

++1 to that too!

After running the beta releases for some time now, my opinion is that they are going to have to nearly give it away for people to upgrade. No start menu, really?

Is this Windows ME 3.0 or Vista 2.0? The negatives on Vista are far less then what I have heard from virtually everyone that i know that has tried 8.

At least make an option to keep the windows 7 way of operating if you are installing on a desktop with mouse and keyboard.

I will get the upgrade simply so I can support my customers but it will not replace windows 7 for me.
