Microsoft to offer $15 Windows 8 upgrade, when you buy a Window 7 PC


In need of a new computer , but holding out because you don't want to be saddled with a last gen-OS when Windows 8 lands? Worry not potential consumers, Microsoft plans to offer a cheap upgrade path to its latest and greatest if you buy in now. Well, not now, but soon. Starting June and 2nd Redmond will offer a $15 upgrade from Windows7 to Windows8 Pro. Mary Jo Foley first reported the deal was last weak, but wasn't able to put a price on the offer. Now, Paul Thurrott is filling in those blanks. For $14.99 any new PC purchaser will be insured against the coming metro revolution. This is hardly a new tactic for Microsoft, which has used similar deals to try and stave off steep drops in computer sales as the release of a new OS approaches.
