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.

XP 64bit is worse than XP 32bit.

In what respect? Drivers were the biggest problem in my experience. But other than that it was just like XP 32 bit except more robust.

It always fell apart for me after a few months and would refuse to shutdown and other odd things.

It is a bit of a running joke that XP64bit is a bit crap.

XP64bit runs worse than Windows 7 on my Dell D430 (2GB of ram).
