Windows While I was fast asleep, Microsoft unveiled the SKUs for Windows 8 - and we're in for a surprise. Yes, after years and years of fully deserved mockery for releasing 343 versions of each Windows release, the company has seen the light and reduced everything to just four - of which only two, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro, will be freely available in stores.

Who cares if they release one version or 1000? Still a "POS" but some good news, my company passed a new IT policy and in it is a "No Upgrade to Windows 8" section and we have found companies to sell PC's directly to us without an OS pre-installed.

Cool story.

I've heard someone will install Windows 8 though.

Windows 9 (and maybe 10) will be out by then. Hopefully without the Metro nonsense.
