Yep... if your computer is running Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 you can download an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $39.99. If you'd rather have physical media, you can get it on DVD for $69.99.

I think they will have trouble selling to people using anything other than a touchscreen. So far, I am not impressed by metro. MS removed the start button / menu, so it's useless to me.
