Well, no more excuses!- The uppgrade to Windows 8 will be available for the tiny amount $39.99
This fine blogpost explains how you can uppgrade – but be aware that this is in october, NOT NOW, and there is some fine print. I got a comment on facebook that people were wondering were to purchase, and I’m sorry,- I made the assumption that people knew Win8 will most likely be released in October.
So, you CAN NOT purchase Windows 8 – this release will become available in October (I believe). The beta is out there , and I recommend you try it. AS for the $39.99 offer, is if you have an “underlying license for either Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7” (hence the ‘uppgrade’).
