I've had a tab opened to the pirate bay page where you can start the torrent. I can't get myself to do it. Not cause I don't steal, but I need to got to bed early tonight and if I get this, i'll be up all night playing with it. oh how that tab taunts me so...
Thank goodness. My fault. I closed it after I pressed some link on my iPhone... sheesh. Sorry fellas.
To answer your question Rog. I hope the US$39 price for an upgrade really comes about. I'd hate to fork out US$400 for Windows 8. I rather buy a new smartphone. Let's wait and see and hope that it wasn´t just another rumor.
I must say Windows 8 takes some get used to. It´s a different concept altogether. The learning curve takes a little longer, and your initial setup does lead you to Windows eco-system ONLY. After that, I started taking control and now I have the PC set up, more or less, the way I like it. But so far, so good.
