As Microsoft has with their last few OS upgrades, they will be offering discounted software upgrades to get users up and running Windows 8 no matter what system they’re on. Windows XP, Vista, and 7 users will be able to upgrade to 8 Pro $39.99 if purchased online, and a sort of ridiculous $69.99 in stores. Which leaves us wondering, why would the price be doubled for a hard copy? Whatever the reason, it looks like Microsoft is really getting serious about rolling Windows 8, and we’re curious to see how they do it in the coming months. As always, drop a comment below, and stay tuned for more!
