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.

Well I don't see the same performance problems, I been using Vista since RTM on a core 2 duo 1.2ghz ultra portable and 1GB of ram.

BTW, I run Visual Studio 2010 and Sql Server 2008 (developer version) and it might get a little laggy when alt-tabbing.

I also installed Vista on a 1.4ghz Athlon XP, with 1GB of ram and a Ati Rage 128 graphics card, works perfectly fine.

So I am sorry, either you have seriously mis-configured your hardware or you lying.

It isn't as slick as Win7, but it has been fine.
