Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

I'm kinda confused ... how do I buy it if I don't own any other Windows version?

I think MS realized that only Windows users would buy the new Windows... no need to change if you use OSX, iOS, Android, Linux, etc. ;)
