    Now Windows 8 is close to released in a couple of days

    My question is simple: Which way will you choose to get Windows 8 Choices Given Below

    1.Purchase new pc/laptop/tablet with windows 8 pre-install

    2.Already have purchase new pc/laptop/tablet & go for windows 8 upgrade offer at discounted price

    3.Will purchase windows 8 disc oem version or upgrade disc or retail

    4.Or will use donload version with kms activation & wait for better long-term activation solution



    Myself i will choose option 2 as ive already purchase new laptop last month & the offer to upgrade at such a good price seems worth ago

    i have one concern about the upgrade offer will this give me the option to add Windows Media Center also as i read somewhere on-line this would be offer free for a short period

    I also read that samsung will offer customers an option to restore the start button is this true if not which is the best option to do this

    thanks

    The poll does not contain the options like Technet or Dreamspark or alike

    If I didn't had Dreamspark then I would have ordered it too.
    60 euro for a complete OS with many features?! So cheap..

    And did you get that with a legit Dreamspark account?
    You know what bugs me about this forum and the Dreamspark thing?
    Not trying to come across as "holier-than-thou" but my university pays good money for Dreamspark, and it kinda devalues it when people use exploits to gain access to it :nono2:
    ....I just don't want M$ to pull support for it, its really important for us CS students

    For your understanding: The NSBA deal is over since a while and if someone still has access to Dreamspark shows, that he probably is allowed to do so. Fraud is everywhere but not necessarily with everyone :eek:

    I am evaluating with technet but the key expires after 1 year. Not sure if I will renew, depends on what MS is doing in a year.
