Upgrading to Windows 8 Pro Will Only Cost You a Few Hours and $39.99

With the release date of the popular Windows 8 operating system getting closer and closer and changes out of the way, I think it's about time to shift to what it might cost us to upgrade to the new software. The good thing is that Microsoft seems to agree and posted in their Windows Team Blog this week about just that thing. Specifically, blogger Brandon LeBlanc wanted to talk about upgrading to Windows 8 from a prior operating system.

LeBlanc said that the goal with Windows 8 was to make it so that practically anybody could essentially "upgrade" to the new Microsoft way of life. To start that, any Windows XP, Vista or Win7 user will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 for just $39.99 in 131 different markets across the globe. For those of you wanting the "Windows Media Center Edition," an additional checkbox will be available for you to click on at no extra charge with the Windows 8 Pro upgrade.

What other perks and options do you get when you upgrade to Windows 8? Well, we have all of the information after the break, including what happens to you Windows XP users out there.
