Windows 8 open for pre-order
After much hype of Windows 8, Microsoft has finally opened its Windows 8 operating system for pre-orders on Friday, setting the price for an upgrade to the full version of the software at $70 for a DVD pack.
Users can also wait for October 26 to download it directly on the Computer for just $40 and its offer is valid only till January 2013. Also any customers who bought or will buy Windows 7 between June 2 2012 till the end of January 2013 will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $15. But Microsoft didn’t mentioned anything about Surface tablet which is planned to released at the same time.
Personally I feel Windows Surface is going to rock and Windows 8 Metro UI is really promising and for Surface I will be the first in the queue to buy it. Eagerly waiting for Surface tablet to release.
