Microsoft wants to make sure that you still buy computers over the summer and not wait for Windows 8. Buying a Windows 7 PC starting tomorrow gives you the option to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $14.99 once it is available in Fall.
Unlike previous upgrade programs, Microsoft will manage the redemption process, including eligibility verification, payment, software delivery, and support. Delivery of Windows 8 Pro will occur via electronic software distribution.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
