Windows 8 has been out for a few weeks now and, wow, what an exciting update it is to the Windows operating system. With the beautiful and elegant Start screen, all the interesting apps that are available and the easy-to-use touch interface, Windows has come a long way since it was first released back in the early 1980s.
A really great aspect of Windows 8 is that you can use it just as easily with a keyboard and mouse as with the new touch interface. Plus, the familiar Windows 7 desktop is still available to run older applications.
The best part is that it’s only $40 to upgrade from XP, Vista or 7. This is a limited-time offer, however; the price goes up after January 31.
