    Does the 699 upgrade offer work on pirated win7 keys? Does win8 prompt for a windows 7 license while installation? I hope mike or ash can shed some light on this.

    I wanted to know if Windows 8 requested for a win7 key. And for 1999 i would better upgrade my genuine xp to be on safer side.

    I have the discount codes but I think it is better if I trial Windows 8 first. I have a few programs that may not comply with Windows 8 due to updates given on major version or the lack of recent release yet. Granted, each company may have their own development pace so I can't expect too much for them to keep up with Microsoft. So, Avinash or Ashwin, would you please send me a PM which contains download link to Windows 8 setup?

    The way you are asking has made me wonder if you are using a pirated copy of Windows 7?

    You can download Windows 8 enterprise Evaluation 90 Day from here.
    Direct from MS.

    Bonus hint:- Try searching for digital river download links for Windows 8 in mydigitallife forums. I am not posting those links here.

    Can hardly believe that this is the same computer which used to run XP 4 years ago.

    It's simply superb and I am enjoying the crispness

    Here's my desktop

    That's the classic desktop, right? It looks similar to win 7. And I don't see an AV icon, just zemana and MBAM

    What about the new interface, do you like it?

    Microsoft had fixed the Rs. 699/ $14 upgrade loophole according to this .

    Any idea when the retail copies are available in India?

    All the reputed AVs support Windows 8 so don't worry about those. I suspect Ashwin is using KIS 2013.

    Everyone are concerned about my PC's security?
    I am using Kaspersky Internet Security 2013, ok here's a screenie.

    As Bala requested, it is without the Start button and shows the K icon as Cosme wanted

    Cosme asked me if I liked the new interface?
    I love the new interface Metro UI is too good, since I use 1366x768 on an 18.5 inch wide LCD. It's like in HD. Superb clarity.
