Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

He is not wrong.

At the end of the day you were running the upgrade assistant on an hacked Windows. The hacked version of Windows is no viable target that Microsoft should test their upgrade assistant against.

In anycase, what you were doing was immoral. You were trying to get your "el cheapo" version, by trying to upgrade a license you never paid for in the first place, and then you had a little cry.
