Upgrading to Windows 8 will be more expensive starting tomorrow

Windows 8 Pricing Increase

Despite the fact that most people haven’t upgraded to Windows 8, the promotional price for Microsoft’s (MSFT) latest operating system is coming to an end. The company has offered Windows 8 upgrades for as little as $39.99 for the past few months, but starting on February 1st that price will more than double to $119.99 and a comparable upgrade to Windows 8 Pro will jump to $199.99. Microsoft will also be offering its Media Center, which had previously been free to early adopters, for $9.99. Students and school faculty will be able to upgrade Windows 8 Pro for $70.
