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.

I guess we'll see how they price future versions of Windows but maybe the reason 8 is so low is because of all the negative opinions of it.

A company proves its right to exist, by charging a fee for their products. Lowering prices is a sign of weakness. High prices are a sign of strength.

This low price shows that MS is hesitant on Windows 8. The next Windows can not be sold for a much higher price, there will be an outrage.
