Microsoft this week (thanks for the heads up, ZDnet) announced that existing Windows 7, Vista, and XP users will be able to download a fully functional upgrade version of Windows 8 Pro for only $39.99! This is the exact same Windows 8 you'll be able to walk into a store and buy.
An upgrade from one version of Windows to the next usually runs $100 or more.
You can read all about the announcement here.
Does this newly announced "bargain" price of $40 for Windows 8 change your mind about trying Microsoft's newest operating system? Let me know in the comments!
