    1. Well I am using Windows 8 and am happy with the performance, but if you have not used the new interface it will take time getting used to.

  1. Buyers beware, if you have a pirated Windows XP it will say it is compatibile for upgradation and demand Rs.1999/- after you paid and downloaded Windows 8 and the key it will not install it will display an error code and if you deciper it -“yours windows XP has not passed validated test”. What to do next. Scrach your head.

    1. Nothing of such happens. You will get the working key when u upgrade. Though I have not done but I know many people who had done it by paying 1999. Microsoft has done this to push its initial sales.

      1. Can you confirm it happened with you or someone you know? @Gippi
        Can you confirm it didn’t happen with someone you know? @ishesh

  2. Hi gogi.
    I’m using genuine windows 7 starter version.I’ll go for the broadband upgradation but please tell me about the payment ways and how the upgraded version would be secured in case of a windows formating. A Thanks in advance.

  3. Gogi,

    I have Win 7 Home Basic OEM installed, if I upgrade to Windows8, will the drivers for my laptop be available. Current machine in discussion is Sony Vaio Core i3 (1st gen), 3GB RAM.

    1. Yogesh, I think the drivers that worked on 7 will work on 8. There is a tool that you will first need to download which will check if the system is compatible with 8. But all windows 7 pc/ laptop will be compatible with version 8.

  4. Its very Imp ?.

    I have vista original cd.. never use..
    1) Can I download iso image.. and use install vista product id.. and overwrite it..
    2) Payment need to be done online & will upgrade it accordingly.

    Please tell me because i have never use vista at all. it can come in use for me..

    1. All got cleared.. i called up Microsoft site directly..

      1 it will check the system compatibility.

      2 it will ask for making payment and then product id & download Iso image..

  5. Hi gogi, can I manually download in another PC and install in my laptop. Because I don’t have internet connection?

    1. Sayan, what you are saying is true but you see now when many users are connected to the net 247 you need an original OS to keep it updated and get additional benefits.

      1. I avail every update and benefit on pirated copy even, no issues 24/7 no problem, developers will find way in 24/7.

        1. True but if you have that much time with you. Just imaging you have an imp work to do on the PC and the last update made the OS useless asking for the product key.

          1. I am using windows 7 after a week of its release. It never happen on my laptop, hack never failed since release of windows 7 till today. I have full access of microsoft every update. Trouble free windows 7. Hope same 4 NEW WINDOWS 8 waiting hand on it.

          2. Hello Avinash,
            I have a cd of windows 7, when I installed it said 1 month later it will be expired, what is the solution to make it genuine like yours?

  6. Hope windows 8 will be better than windows 7. and don’t need to revert back to windows xp as in the case of windows 7.
