    I heard about this a couple of days ago. I’ve organised me a full retail package. Save me having to download 8.1 and comes in handy when I reformat. The downloads & patches wont be that big. Thanks MS.

    I will gladly buy 8.1 if they reverted the OS back to Windows 7 😀 (Areo Glass disabled and all)
