    Oh, well thanks for letting me know! i'm still okay with the $39 upgrade. Beats paying a $100-something for a windows 7 upgrade back then.

    Since you've pirated every other version of Windows the $39 upgrade doesn't apply to you either.

    The Windows 7 upgrade was also cheap when it came out (for 3 or 6 months). Then it went up. Win 8 will also go up. So get it early if you want the cheap deal...

    I quite like the way the RTM (Enterprise 64-bit) runs.

    It's just a shame it LOOKS so bloody horrible.

    I want my Aero back! No ifs, buts or maybes. Just DO IT!

    Hi there
    I thought I'm the only person on these forums who uses THIS Edition of Windows.(Screen shot enc).

    Anybody else using it -- "I want my money back" ..

    Cheers
