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.

You're right. I means ME instead of 2000. I was talking about the consumer editions.

XP - just 2000 SE ...2k didn't get hit much, didn't get bad rep, mostly because it was less used and more in the pristine, innocent days before constant net connections, and/or in a tight ~corporate setups.
