Microsoft announced on Monday that Updates from previous Windows version using the digital download will cost only 40$ for Windows 8 Pro for a limited time.

Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 are eligible for the update and the update period runs until end of January 2013.

This is by far the most aggressive pricing for any Windows so far and a great value. If you prefer to buy an actual box the Update version will cost you 70$.
