If you want a Windows 8 Pro DVD, reply here. I will close this on Friday and send to one person, random draw.

Surprise me with your witty comments about it.

With all the fancy terminology these days, they call that sidebar thing in Windows 8 a Charms bar. How feminine sounding...

My current O/S is quickly approaching its eXPiry date.




The three hardest things to say: 1. I was wrong, 2. I need help, 3. Worcestershire sauce.

Keen to try it as a dual (or duel?) boot on my macbook. Windows 7 has failed to make it my primary OS, maybe Windows 8 will do better.

I have it already, bought when on special, downloaded and installed.

I don't have it on DVD though. A new Windows 8 Coffee coaster sounds awesome.

To tell the truth I have no idea if the DVD replicates the external design - this is an unopened DVD so you risk getting a white coaster. But up to you.

Would it be witty to say I would actually like to have this?

I bought one less than I needed ;)

Shouldn't the light at the end of the psychedelic tunnel be "Blue"?!

When you think about it Win8 is a bit hippie compared to it's predecessors so that packaging makes a lot of sense now that I think about it

I want it because I can use the cover to hypnotise my children.
