Microsoft announced that Windows 8 will be released to manufacturing during the first week of August and it will be available to the masses sometime in October. I can’t say I’m looking forward to Windows 8 Pro with much enthusiasm but for $39.99 I’m going to take the plunge.
Coming much sooner, cheaper and with much more enthusiasm is Apple’s Mac OS X “Mountain Lion”. The Golden Master version of the OS was released to developers yesterday and will be made available to the masses some time this month for just $19.99. And that’s just $19.99 for ALL the Macs in my home.
Tough to beat that.
