Bad news if you want to upgrade to Windows 8 but are yet to do so. Microsoft has announced its introductory offer will end on 1 February. From then on, in the US, instead of costing $40 to upgrade to Windows 8, it’ll set you back $120, or $200 for Windows 8 Pro.

So to hike the price of the OS up by 500% for those who might want to upgrade or legitimately get a copy of this OS is only going to make a sensible IT purchaser as why it is Apple charged £20(ish) for a multi user update for the last 3 releases of OSX..
