Windows 8 Editions Announced

Yesterday, the Windows 8 editions were officially announced. This time, similar to Windows XP, there will be 3 main editions: Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, and Windows RT (pre-installed on ARM-based devices). Which edition(s) will you get? See the below link for more details on which features will be included in each edition.

I'll end up getting a laptop with Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT on a tablet... I hope some really good ones are released before Uni starts next yeah... I at least want to get myself a new Windows 8 laptop before uni starts in 2013...

As for my main desktop at home... yeah, since I'll have a Windows 8 laptop and tablet, it only seems natural for me to upgrade it to Windows 8 Pro too to take full advantage of having all three devices as Windows 8 systems.

I'm undecided for now. If 8 offers something worthwhile, and it's available at a reasonable upgrade price, I'll get it. Otherwise, I'm quite happy with 7.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

Sorry about the bump and DP, but I thought that some here would find this interesting.

MS is going to offer an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro to just about anyone in the US, including you crazy XP users, for $40. Note that Windows 8 Pro is the top-of-the-line version of Windows 8, equivalent to the ultimate versions of Vista and 7, making this a hell of a bargain that I'll probably be taking advantage of. This is download-only (but you can make your own disk); the disk version will be $70.

MS could very well make a similar offer outside of the US as well, so those of you who do not reside in the Great Republic Experiment might be able to get in on this, too.

Hnn, I doubt such a promo will come to NZ, but if it does, I'll probably jump on. But whether I'll actually start using 8 then remains undecided. I'll have to check it's general compatibility with existing software and whatnot.



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.
