Thought this could use its own thread to save people some money.

Go here:

Windows Upgrade Offer - Landing Page (http://www.windowsupgradeoffer.c om/en-US)

Register a PC. Enter any information you want. I named mine "Other" and put the Model Number of my processor (3570k) :lol:. It'll show you your Registration ID (you'll get an email with the ID as well).

Then go to:

Windows Upgrade Offer - My Order (https://www.windowsupgradeoffer.c om/en-US/MyOrder)

Put in your ID, it'll take you to the next page where your Promo Code is listed (it'll email you your code as well). Copy that, download the Windows Update Assistant from that page, and get Windows 8 for $15.

It's available for download right now if you use this method BTW.

Edit, nope

MS is realizing that the system OS is the conduit for app sales and the more people who install it mean more app revenue. Cell phone model.
