Quote:
When the OS finally goes retail in October, customers with a Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 machine will qualify to download an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $39.99 in 131 markets.

There are other promo offers out there for those who bought a Win 7 PC recently (or will buy one in next few months)

p.s., Thanks for the heads-up comments in other thread on early testing of Windows 8.

And in a related article: Microsoft radically overhauls license agreements for Windows 8

http://www.zdnet.com/microsoft-radicall ... 000002866/

Regarding: PERSONAL USE LICENSE (SYSTEM BUILDER) FOR WINDOWS 8 PRO
Quote:
That last license type represents the first time Microsoft has formally acknowledged the right of its end-user customers to install Windows 8 on a new PC they build themselves, or to install it in a virtual machine or on a separate partition.
