I was just charged for my copy of Windows 8 about an hour ago. Wonder if they are shipping early to get it here by Friday. ;)

I never order Windows online, always head to Walmart and pick it up. I remember getting Windows 7 Home Premium on opening day, grabbed the last copy on the shelf. But, I plan on going to the store again to pick it up.

Isn't the digital copy (download) cheaper?

I was at Walmart a couple days ago and they had placeholders for Windows 8 and Pro upgrades but no copies. I was thinking maybe they were pulled, supposedly a few people picked up a copy there over last weekend.

Personally, I ordered an OEM full install version from Newegg last week with the 10 dollars off deal.
