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.

Rubbish is an overstatement.
But indeed, 3 networking bugs prevented me from using it before (one in the DNS resolver, can't remember the other ones).
All were fixed in SP3.

Coming from NT4, the refreshed UI (NT4 still had a lot of dialogs from the 3.x era), the added USB stack (!) and, later, Automatic Updates were nice improvements.
