I decided Win 8 was a failure once I started seeing the upgrade packs at a lower price than student editions of Win 7. I think the local Micro Center is selling Win 8 upgrade packs for like $40. If they get any cheaper they might as well give them away.

That was the launch price, not a price cut due to poor sales. Preemptively priced, expecting poor sales, maybe. But, not indicative of actual sales.

i think MS appreciates they need to get as many people onboard as possible or they're fucked.

among our demographic uptake isn't exactly skyrocketing, but 2% is honestly a lot more than i expected for october considering it was only available for 5 days.
