Microsoft will usually announce cheap upgrade programs when they are about to release a major release to their software. It will keep the consumer buying spree afloat before the major wave of new products. According to ZDNet, Microsoft will announce an upgrade program for Windows 8 from June 2, 2012.
Microsoft will make the so-called “Windows 8 Offer” available to consumers buying a Windows 7 PC running Home Basic or higher, allowing them to obtain Windows 8 Pro once Windows 8 is available. The Windows 8 Pro SKU is for tech enthusiasts and business/technical professionals, and includes encryption, virtualization, PC management and domain connectivity, as well as support for a separately priced Media Pack for Windows Media Center.
Paul from Winsupersite has added a info to the above that the price for the upgrade will be $14.99. Pretty neat offer!
