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.

Smiled at that, just deleted Windows 8 Consumer Preview in favor of XP on an 'oldish' laptop that came with Vista. Almost got carried away thinking 'maybe' as I'm a sucker for 'bargains'...not that much of a sucker though! Besides, imagine in Rip-Off-Britain...
