    Windows 8 Pro upgrade $15

    A coming Microsoft promotion will provide Windows 8 Pro to buyers of Windows 7-based PCs for just $14.99, according to my sources. The promotion begins June 2, and was first reported by my Windows Weekly cohost Mary Jo Foley.

    Wasn't the similar Windows 7 upgrade free?

    The interesting question is the price for the Windows 8 retail.
