Microsoft Hopes to Woo Students with Windows 8 Upgrade Discount

Maximum PC: "With the introductory Windows 8 upgrade discount offer set to expire today, now is a good time to snag a $40 Windows 8 Pro upgrade license for those who have a favorable opinion of the operating system and are considering an upgrade. Because once normal Windows 8 update pricing takes effect tomorrow, you will have to shell out as much as $199 for an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro or $119 if you opt for the Windows 8 upgrade edition. But U.S. students and faculty members interested in Windows 8 don’t need to worry all that much about the pricing reset, as Microsoft has announced a special discount offer exclusively for them." (Software, Windows, Windows 8)

I bet Microsoft is going to make W8 plenty affordable even after its supposed price hike.

at least they didn't push it down every pc/laptop potential customers throats. similar to what they did with vista.

you couldn't find 1 xp running laptop when they did that move.

all they needed to do was make it a option as to how you start off for desktop pc's. if we were given a choice how it will continually start up, either in metro mode or desktop mode, all this hatred would have been muted from the get go,
