Nice to see a shift in MS approach. Even pirated copies of Windows7 can be upgraded for 40$ (iv tested myself) and you get a very own brand new Windows 8 Pro key. Its a fair price for common home Windows users, finally a realistic price for an upgrade.
FACT: Most people will buy Windows for the first time with this new realistic philosophy, its fantastic to see this new Microsoft rising again for the battle.
Let me be clear that i didnt buy Windows8 for the extra features because personlly i dont see that it does bring anything better than Windows7 but just in case its a cheap and clean upgrade.
Yeah its a good price. I wasn't even considering upgrading to win8 at first, but when I saw how cheap it was I was like "well, why not?"

windows 7 sold 100 million copies total in 6 months
windows 8 sold 4 million upgrades only in 4 days.
LOL at the delusional people who kept saying nobody wants windows 8.
Death to the desktop. Go Metro
lol... most of the current metro apps are so basic they are practically useless for desktop users. The classic desktop will be here for quite some time. The metro start screen works well enough as a start menu replacement, but using only metro on the desktop? Not even close to that yet.
