A friend of mine works at a computer recycling plant in my city. He scored a couple technet subscriptions and got a bunch of Windows 8 pro keys. I bugged the shit out of him and he gave me one for free. Looks slick on the M17xR3 with the right color theme applied. I have it installed on my Windows SSD dual booting with Windows 7. Even the boot selection screen has a metro look to it now...

@Tommy lol
Im always editing that file ;)
 
For that price it's the upgrade right? I hate buying upgrades as if you want to reinstall you have to install the old windows and then upgrade again.

I'm not sure about putting an OS designed for tablets onto a PC. But in saying that, I know someone who has it and he says it's pretty good.

Still ... Win7 is great for me!

No its the full thing, upgrade was for 15$ (699 INR here which is less than that, think MS is trying to make us, the potential biggest market happy lol)
I think its 40$ in other places as well for a limited time so you can grab it soon if you are really interested

Do you guys still get the full version of windows 8 for $40?? If so think you can buy a couple of copies to be re-sold to us on the forum?? Aust only gets the upgrade so far.

Edit: does this come in English??

Well, I installed Win 8 Pro today. Did the $40 upgrade. I did a clean install though buy putting Win 8 Pro on a USB flash drive and booting to it.

It's hard getting used to not having the Start button. LOL
