Is there any particular reason they ship new systems with such an ancient version of PowerDVD? I looked at pricing for upgrading to get full Windows 8 support and I see that Version 12 is what's out - I've never had an OEM preinstall something as outdated as this...

Was there some particular reason does anyone know?
