Windows versions: What does this mean?

  1. #11


    This is what I was talking about and keeping the investors happy...

    "According to Microsoft Communications Manager Brandon LeBlanc, after January 31, a Windows 8 pro upgrade will cost you $200 ($160 more than it will cost you now), while a basic Windows 8 upgrade will cost $120. A Windows 8 Pro Pack, which you can use to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro if you have the basic version, will cost $100 – $30 more than its current price."

    I'm not sure what you're talking about. This is just the normal price of Windows. Windows 8 was heavily discounted for the first 3 months. Now you're upset that the price has gone back to normal? They didn't have to give you a discount to begin with.

    You have explain it to a tee. It would appear the OP is looking to determine if what people are attempting to tell him is for real or not.

    To the OP what everyone has been attempting to tell you is the way it is going to be; two version will be put out for sale on Feb. 1, 2013:

    Windows 8 - $119.00
    Windows 8 Pro $199.00

    It really is that easy.
