Microsoft Proposes Everyone to Upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $39.99.
Just one more point though: upgrading an existing installation is a really stupid idea. Clean install is the only way to go.
I can run BF3 on 4GB of ram without disabling desktop composition and themes.
My OC gpu can be rebooted after a critical failure without the need to restart the system.
IE10+flash 11.3 can run 720p youtube on a single core atom with no frame drops at all.
The new task manager is great for killing stuff.
Metro is fine and many apps are nice...
...if only that thing was left out of my desktop. Without the start menu and the presence of metro everywhere it takes me double the amount of clicks to do most of the work.
And network adapters management is more broken than it is in 7.
i don't know if this is worth 40$, considering i would upgrade from 7.
Also, many of you will know that the actual version number of "Windows 7" is actually only 6.1. Now Windows 8 appears to be version 6.2... strange.
Anyways, as an IT professional I'm predicting record numbers of downgrades back down to Windows 7 (6.1), unless they fix the Metro debacle with a service pack or something that brings back the normal Windows desktop to the forefront.
The new lego interface may be great for pre-schoolers, but for those that really wish to use their computers the LEGO (MS Bob) interface is trash.
