Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Cost is Just $15

Microsoft will provide Windows 8 Pro to buyers of Windows 7-based PCs for just $14.99, according to Paul Thurrott. The promotion begins June 2.
Microsoft has always provided a promotion to PC buyers in the months before a new Windows version hits the street. The reason being that with a new version about to arrive, consumers might otherwise hold off on new PC purchase, scuttling sales for 3 to 6 months.

So if you will buy Windows 7 PC after June 2nd, you will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 for $15 later, right?
Correct. There's of course going to be a cut off date after which they won't provide the $15 update for, but that will be quite a few months out.
