    Is it correct call given by Windows to give Windows 8 upgrade for just 40$? WIll it be sufficient enough for Microsoft to get the profit from the present year?

    I just came to know that Microsoft have planned to sell out is Windows 8 upgrade for just 40$. Is this is a good call given by Windows? Wondering if it will be sufficient enough for Microsoft to get the profit from the present year?

    Yes my friend,

    what you heard is absolutely right. You can find the details as follows:

    Starting from the day of general release of the new OS, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 owners will be able to buy the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro from Windows.com for $40. This offer will be available, but Microsoft has told us that the exact price hasn't yet been confirmed; however, we'd expect it to be a fairly straight dollar-to-pound conversion, so expect some price VAT as well.





    As well as the cheap upgrade, users will be able to choose to install Windows Media Center for free using the Add Features option from within Windows 8. Other users will have to pay for Media Center, which is no longer an integral part of the OS.

    Thank you..!!

    Hi,

    A megacorp. like Microsoft thinks, develops, market its product better than most of the corporations we know.

    Think of a scenerio where there are 80% control of Microsoft Operating System and the company wish to increase it more.

    First of all only Windows7 users who will buy preinstalled machines will be able to get in that price, and whats more important is that Microsoft is keeping all users intact and the users are getting a bait for not switching to any other OS.

    Expect a good pricing which is not cheap by any means once the terget number of users are achieved.

    Additional features can also be marketed at a premium and thats what i suppose Microsoft is heading.

    Thanks.
