    Cheap Places to Purchase Windows 8.1 Standard/Home x64

    Hi Folks:

    I was just wondering (with the release of Windows 10 soooo close) are the any "clearance" style ways to purchase a cheap copy/license or two of Windows 8.1 Standard (x64). I don't need pro, and I'm not yet ready to install it on my PC full time yet (I'll need a new machine to do that). But I'd like to get it really cheap and legit.

    Any help is appreciated. If anyone in Ontario might know too, that would be especially helpful (but please any American or overseas friends, I'd be very happy to hear from you)

    I would scour Amazon and Ebay you may find a retailer that needs to get rid of DVD versions.

Windows purchase question
I'm building a computer and will be installing Windows on it. The processor is 64-bit, so I'd be getting the 64-bit version of Windows. The only thing I'm able to find is an OEM copy. I don't know that I necessarily need to get the 32/64 bit copy of Windows.

How Windows 8 is performing in home/home office operation
Just My opinion.. Windows in the Win8 version is not suited for home use any longer. It is overly complex, and, even for experienced Windows users, it is counter intuitive in many areas. I think Windows 8 has taken complexity “one bridge too far” for ordinary users. This comment by me, a MSEE...

Windows won't download after purchase
My son bought the Windows 8 upgrade on offer £24.99 from MS. But it will not download no matter what option he selects - install now, create media or install from desktop later. Just keeps failing saying there is an error and try later. Any ideas?
