    Microsoft Entices Users To Upgrade To Windows 8.1 With $50


    While talk about Microsoft working on a free version of Windows 8.1 is going around which is good press, definitely the company is not yet done with its campaign to get loyal Windows XP users to upgrade. (By the way, have you seen the warning popup on Windows XP yet?) Given all that the company has done to try to convince everyone to let go of its iconic operating system, it still has a few tricks up its sleeve.
    Earlier this month, they launched a campaign offering a $50 gift card to customers who buy one of the devices Microsoft has selected. These include 16 devices, covering a range of notebooks, desktops, tablets, or 2-in-1 hybrids all running on Windows 8.1, naturally.

    Most of the people, who are holding on to XP, probably say: "Over my dead keyboard..."

    Kind of the Charles Heston's of Windows. He is dead now though. I say we go back to '98 or even 3.1.

    While we are at it, how about we all go back to the 1980s model cars too?

    I still stand by my claim that I actually love Windows 8/8.1
