Too expensive

When the sales of Windows 8 has not been good worldwide when it was Rs 3500 (99 USD), how can some one pay this 12K odd rupess for a half baked OS.

Better to wait for the new one coming later this year.

Single star for the cost. Nothing against Flipkart.

Window 8 is BEST!

First of all a msg to window 8 haters : this window 8 is not built for "GAWARS"

I am using Windows since Vista released!...
and i found Window 8 is the way batter than Apple's OS

I guess mostly people here commenting against W8 are either r MAC lovers or they just want to do spread bad views on W8, or as i said already it is not for gawaar people..

w8 is amazing...
it's fast, good design, user friendly, beautiful and it has everything what a PC user needs and deserves!

Mac has bigger issu...

Good OS,comparable to Apple

In my computer i had factory installed windows Vista OS and it sucked so much that i felt of migrating to Apple. But,then Win 8 came,though the reviews were bad to nasty,i took the plunge and migrated from Vista to 8 at low price. And for the first time i felt that Microsoft has a comparable product.

This Windows 8,is my 2nd purchase for my Sony Vaio as i was not very happy with Win 7,though whatever praises they put on Win 7.

It uploaded fast and my laptop has got a fresh breath of life.

Genuine is Genuine

When I was buying the original windows , people said why to waste money when the pirated version can be bought for 50/100 bucks but then after using the original version I realize why everyone should use original version with least fear of crash or hacking thru viral attacks.

Ahem, a few words...

All right in my laptop i have Win 8, i pretty much updated when it was released BUT i just had to pay around 1 or 2k, because back in december it was an offer.

So here goes, ITS MARVELOUS, beautiful, and beats copy/cut--paste by probably 9 mb/s which is really faster than 7, start-screen is a very good, innovative and futuristic approach by microsoft at UI. and believe me it's a very-very good experience. It will take some time for you to get with the gestures and swipes but overall you will...

just install linux

trust me linux mint, ubuntu or elementary os is miles better than windows. dont go by what windows fanboys say. try out linux. it lives windows in the dust.

with steam coming to linux, there are a lot of games. software center on linux makes everything just a one click install and everything is just so easy instead of doing things the hard(windows way) also ther was an article on slashdot(and zdnet) saying windows is dead and linux is taking over

Upgrade version not full version

I ordered this product and cancelled since this is an upgrade version from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro. This works only if original Windows 7 is installed on a machine.

Good but not great

First to start, I never wanted to purchase a windows 8. But, my family don't know how to use other OS. So, I tried to put win 8.
Win 8 doesn't provide much experience in my touch less laptop.
Win 8 feels okay for me and one thing to praise about it was, it consumes less memory than win 7.
Other than that if you like to keep your screen with lot of tiles go for it.
But closing the app is one more issue. You need to go to the task manager to close the metro apps.

And about Flipkart, the deliv...
