Windows 8 Pro (32-bit)

Is that for a standard upgrade or does it allow you to use the clean-install tweak?

And how much will the non-upgrade version be? and the non-pro version?

Looks like it allows a clean install....

Would I have the option to do a clean install though?

@McKay - yes we address that above. You can format your hard drive as part of the upgrade experience.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 / OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Great find, but I think I'll remain on Win7 until the initial bugs of Win8 have been discovered and fixed.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP 1

I'll wait until Microsoft releases a new version designed for desktops, rather than hand held devices.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Just shows someone at Microsoft awoke to the fact that Windows 8 might not be a big hit with the normal desktop crowd. Was there a deal this good before Windows 7 came out?

I'll be staying with Windows 7.
