I have never seen an update this cheap from Microsoft! The Windows 8 Pro upgrade requires you to have an activated running copy of Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 to download and upgrade your PC to Windows 8 Pro. More information about the upgrade process comes from Windows Team Blog.
Just like hotcakes, you gotta get’em while their hot!
This great price for the Windows 8 Pro upgrade will end January 31, 2013. The cost for Windows 8 Pro after January 31, 2013 is rumored to be shy of $200.
If you have heard rumors that you will be able to buy Windows 8 and then downgrade, well according to my research, it depends. If you buy the $39.99 special, the answer is NO. If you buy an OEM computer, then yes. I have read that if you buy the $200 version of Windows 8 you will be able to install Windows 7 instead. That might be a good idea, if you aren’t ready for Metro or haven’t bought a touchscreen monitor.
I have been testing and using Windows 8 Pro on a touch screen laptop. I will have more information coming soon.
