Winner Announced: Windows 8 Pro (Upgradable To 8.1 Update 1) Giveaway

We’ve given away device accessories, iPhones and even granted our readers early access to the fantastic Titanfall Xbox One / PC beta that graced the gaming world before its official launch. Today we area back with yet another giveaway, this time for Windows 8 Pro license.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 18 months; Windows 8 is Microsoft’s current desktop OS. In an effort to bring Windows up to speed with modern devices Microsoft made a larger number of changes to the software with the intention of improving the offered user experience on a wide array of modern hardware. If you haven’t already gotten your own official copy of Microsoft’s latest offering, then now is the perfect time, and that too for free.


The lucky winner of the Windows 8 license will be able to immediately benefit from all of the powerful functionality and features that Microsoft has brought to the table. The implementation of the Windows Store, for instance, means that users can download and install additional third-party software directly from a curated selection of offerings. Microsoft has also paid a lot of much needed attention to build tighter integration with online services. Existing Microsoft accounts can be used to sign into first-party Web services on standard desktop, laptop and touch-screen devices.

It is important to note that the giveaway is for Windows 8 Pro product key only. It does not include the physical media. Once the winner has been chosen and informed, he/she can follow our guide on how to: download the Windows 8 ISO file directly from Microsoft legitimately using the product key he or she won. The Windows 8 Pro product key that we are giving away will also allow the lucky winner to immediately update 8.0 to 8.1, and then subsequently to Windows 8.1 Update 1, without any cost.
