Discussions about stuff that isn't Hardware. Keep it legal, or at least vague enough to cover my ass if the lawyers gets on my case.

Windows 8 Preview $40 upgrade to full Win8

Want to get a cheap copy of Win8? Just install the preview now, and when the full version is released you can buy the upgrade to the full RTM version for $40!

For some reason though the upgrade won't carry your applications across during the upgrade like it can when going from Win7... sounds pretty dumb, but maybe they'll work on that a bit before final release.

Only a week and a bit left to get the Win8 Upgrade for $40 if you are so inclined.

It's a download, so no need to drag yourself into a Harvey Norman or whatever to get it.
