Microsoft did promised that Windows 8 upgrade pack will be sold for 14.99USD or 699 INR and registration are open for it and if you are looking for an upgrade (& even if not), I will suggest you to register for this because this is a steal deal.
The registration is open in 140 countries but it has the biggest catch itself. This is not open for the oldies who had been using Windows 7 from sometime but only for Newbies who had bought a Windows 7 PC recently. Apparently it turned out to be a bummer for me but for many who are planning to buy a laptop can grab it.
The process is extremely simple and has only three steps, the first being most expensive but last one comes in very cheap.
