Hi

Microsoft is now selling the full retail version of windows 8 for 39.99. The normal price is 249$.

This is not the upgrade version, This is the full retail that finally let you legally install windows 8 on any computer.

EDIT: It look like it may be some website error from Microsoft, Some Tech site wrote them to know if it's an error or the retail. Will have more new in a couple of minutes.


EDIT 2: It look like it's just a microsoft problem, this is the upgrade, they change the normal price.

Find it here

Looks like it's still an upgrade.

Strange.

It's not the same upgrade page as before.

It's from the page that usually let you buy windows for full retail. They don't sell any other version now, only this one so....

So this is the now new full retail, or Microsoft no longer sell a retail version ???

They're selling only the upgrade and OEM versions right now. No full retail version is available.
