Windows 8 is cheap to buy, cheap to upgrade to

Added on by TEK.GADG.

Microsoft officially launched Windows 8 this morning in more than 140 markets worldwide. Windows 8 marks a radical departure from the icons-and-start-menu-based interface to a tile-based interface that provides glanceable information on application shortcuts.

Perhaps the best news is that Windows 8 only costs $39.99 (for a limited time) and upgrades from Windows 7 start at $14.99. Wow!
