    Default Is this suicidal?

    Microsoft increases Windows 8 Pro price from $40 to $200 starting February 1 | Digital Trends

    My guess on this is that the sales of Wdws 7 & 8 are not rosy.
    They cannot make enough XP / XP Pro users upgrade.

    Possibility #2:
    Microsoft has huge staff and operating overheads. They need to raise money.

    I wouldn't call this suicidal since they are already dead in my books. More like another nail to the coffin.

    many here are Linux users unwittingly. Android runs on a Linux overlay . . .

    I wouldn't bet my life on M$ bankruptcy..
    the price is in line with previous versions of windows..
    $200 is nothing considering you only upgrade the OS at least once every 2-3 yrs
    compare that price with your phone's, camera's, etc..
