Windows 8 for only $15? YES!…(maybe)

I heard that this was coming, had been watching for it, and (as of yet) haven’t seen it…but, I found the info:

BEFORE YOU PURCHASE A NEW COMPUTER, check to see if you can upgrade to Windows 8 for about 15-bucks.

“…The Windows Upgrade Offer provides consumers who buy an eligible Windows 7 PC the option to purchase a downloadable upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for an estimated retail price of just $14.99 (U.S.)…

“This program…is available for consumers buying new Windows 7 PCs that are preinstalled with Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate and include a matching and valid OEM Certificate of Authenticity. The Windows 7 PC must be purchased new during the eligibility period June 2, 2012–Jan. 31, 2013, and redeemed before the program expiration at the end of February 2013…”


I have been using Windows 8, and feel the need to warn you that I believe some will LOVE the new interface…and for others, it can interfere with productivity. As much as you can, be sure you are ready to be committed to Windows 8 before you install it.
