    Strange, cannot buy Win 8 on the Microsoft site.....


    hi guys,

    Win 8 is available on the US Microsoft site, but when i want to buy it, i get redirected to the belgian site.

    Is this normal, or is it a day to soon.

    Just a little too soon.

    I get this for the download Win8 sale:

    A big deal
    Get Windows 8 Pro on your current PC.
    At a price you won't believe.
    Click the 'Get the details' and it brings me to:

    The new Windows...coming soon
    A new era of PCs built for Windows 8 and Windows RT will be available shortly. You'll be able to buy and download Windows 8 Pro, or get the software package at online retailers and in stores.

    Come back soon—we can't wait either!
    It's the page that will become active later.
