I've been looking online but haven't found any clear answer.... I've read articles (including here on TechSpot) that MS announced a Win 8 upgrade fee of $15 for people who buy a Windows 7 PC on or after June 1, 2012. Well.... What about all the people that have old PCs that have upgraded to Windows 8 Release Preview? What happens when Windows 8 Final is released? Can they also upgrade at a $15 cost or are all these people in for a nasty surprise from MS??? I also read that going back to your original version of Windows will require a complete re-install. When Win 8 Final is released, is MS holding everyone hostage to pay some still un-announced upgrade fee or have to do a complete re-install (assuming they still have an install disk) Fyi, I also found this link Will it be possible to upgrade from the Windows 8 Release Preview to the final version of Windows 8?
