The guys discuss their experiences to date from their testing with upgrading family members’ machines to Windows 8, as well as their expectations from Windows RT on the Surface devices.

If you purchase Windows 8 Pro, you can upgrade until January 31st 2012 at no extra charge by receiving a key to the feature pack from Microsoft.  Regular pricing for the Pro Pack upgrade feature after January 31st 2012 will default to $10.

The guys talk a bit about some of the Windows 8 applications that are starting to appear in theimage Microsoft Store, including the new version of Skype, Evernote, One Note MX, and various other applications.
