well i know said i wouldn't do it, but the opportunity to upgrade to win 8 pro 64 bit for $14.99 just got to me. i used the link wevspot posted in the upgrade thread, completed the buying, download, and installation and now have a new win 8 os on my gamer rig...i took a few picks of the installation in progress, which i will post in little bit. i should say right here that the $14.99 version does not come with the dvd/media center software so i had to purchase that separately for $9.99 after the initial installation had completed. i only did the one install, saved my settings, files, and applications and went ahead and activated the machine online...so far so good, but maan this is gonna take some serious getting used to...seems to be waay different from any of the previous microsoft OS's i've used...
