Upgrade to Windows 8 for $39.99
Microsoft will be offering a discount to upgrade your computer to Windows 8. The upgrade will be available to those running Windows XP, Vista, or Win 7 presently. This low price of $39.99 only applies to downloaded copies of the operating system. If you want a physical disc from Microsoft, the upgrade version of Windows 8 will cost $69.99. This offer will be good through January 31, 2013, in 131 different markets around the world.
Microsoft will also have an online upgrade assistant, to make certain that your system is compatible with Windows 8.
Windows Media Center is no longer offered as part of the Windows 8 operating system, and will normally cost more if you want to add it, but in combination with this limited time upgrade offer, you can download Media Center for no cost.
The story can be seen at the Windows Blog.

My Silhouette Cameo paper cutting machine works with Mac's but since none of the design software that the bulk of people into the hobby use, even at $29 dollars, and the fact you cannot install OSX in a computer that isn't built by Apple, I don't think it should be considered an operating system really, it should be though of as Apple's Center for Controlling Computers and People .
If they do ever allow it to be installed on a machine other than one they have made, I would definitely give it a try again. It takes too much time for me to go between two different computers, and why bother when I have three that can all run everything I need?
Is it a surprise at any given moment that a Windows based computer OS is the most popular? I think W7Pro is great. It's no surprise to me.
