Default Windows Upgrade Offer goes live, but you wonít get Windows 8 until October 26

On June 2, Microsoft launched the Windows Upgrade Offer program to provide anyone who purchases a new Windows 7 PC with a copy of Windows 8 Pro for just $14.99. Windows 8 isnít scheduled for a public release until October 26, but Microsoft is already starting to let eligible customers reserve their copy of the operating system. Everyone who fills out the form will be emailed a special promo code on October 26, which can be used to purchase Windows 8 Pro.

Hereís how it works: Purchase an eligible Windows 7 PC or tablet between June 2, 2012 and July 31, 2013, then make your way over to the Windows Upgrade Offer website and enter your PC make and model, retailer, date of purchase, and the 25-digit Windows 7 product key that came with the device. Then, just launch the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant on your PC between October 26, 2012 and February 28, 2013, proceed through the wizard, and enter your promo code to take advantage of the $14.99 pricing. Of course, if you have an older PC, you can always just pick up an upgrade copy of Windows 8 for $39.99.

Do you plan on upgrading your PC to Windows 8?
