Microsoft Windows 8 Prices and Packaging Revealed.
In fact, this is a gorgeous way to cease piracy in developing markets.
On one hand, the only thing MS can gain is the end of the monopoly of Windows since it roots in their traditionally mild anti-piracy approach, on the other hand as a first reaction people are likely to come up with very ingenious ways of stealing before they start migrating to alternatives.
In general, lately companies developed the misconcept of having the right and the ability to manipulate markets and customers, impose their self-interest on anybody. It looks like the course of events head some kind of revolution since it is not possible to go against the masses on the long run. Certain groups have tried and failed in history.
And trust me Microsoft them self release a pirated copy to the middle east, so we can help get the trend on and make windows 8 more adopted, if that policy was not started from the Windows XP era, then the whole middle east and Arab countries where using GNU\Linux, and we would learned something for change, but here we all use windows xp/7 cause Microsoft releases a pirated build for us...
What nonsense is this, is MS trying to force us enthusiasts to buy another copy of Win8 every few months when we swap motherboards?
On top of that you have to have the more expensive Win8 Pro, OEM $139.
This is definitely a "skip" version of Windows OS for me and all clients. As it will be for the enterprise.
I guess it's every other OS that is decent from MS.
Usually as an enthusiast I jump on nearly every bandwagon that comes along, This could be the first OS I skip, Might be great for tablets/win 8 phones but for desktop I think it is going to suck!
i dont want them down here they smell already up there and they can stay there.
