I'm curious because I remember getting Windows Vista for something like £15 when I was a university student in 2006.

 

EDIT: I've remembered the website name - The Ultimate Steal.

You used to be able to get it through your university. We had a program that gave us huge discounts.

 

There is an Windows 8 Upgrade offer through the Microsoft Store @ £49.99 (not sure what the regular price is)

Yes you can get it for free through Dreamspark.
