Nope. I’m not lying, joking or stuff. Microsoft just announced that you’ll be able to get the Pro edition of Windows 8* for just $40. It’s the best/top edition of Windows 8 you can buy, and to know that the best edition will cost almost 20% of what Windows 7 Ultimate currently costs, is a great news. Fabulous, actually.
Hopefully, this means that there will be considerably fewer people pirating. I know, paying that much for Windows will make you seem like a fool, but it shouldn’t, anymore.
*there are four editions – Windows 8, Pro, RT and Enterprise. You can buy only Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. Windows RT will come pre-installed on tablets, and Enterprise will be available only through volume licensing.
