I heard some rumours about possible special deals on Windows 8 when 8.1 is released, similar to the $50 deal when 8 was first released.  It's not far away now, but anybody have any ideas (or guesses) on whether another special offer might be on the table?  

I see Harvey Norman have the Windows 8 upgrade on sale at $99, and the Mrs has been quite keen to upgrade her Win7 PC after giving 8 a spin on my PC, but I'll wait if there's likely to be a $50 deal on the 8.1 release... :)
