Does it cost to call, for example dial up/minute price as i guess it is not in every country i have to pay the bill to them and back and that would be around 1-1.5 dollars each minute?
I remember when my mom called my granddad, he lives in the Philippians(cant spell it) it costed 100sek for a 1 minute call ( about 13$)

Windows 8 Enterprise Phone Activation

Will this work for those copies of Windows 8 you download from TPB or elsewhere, or do actually have to go out and BUY Windows (eecchh...) :(

Shadow - regarding your post about calling M$oft - when I visited Europe around 5 years aso I bought a telephone card which made the price of calling home very affordable. It's entirely possible that the cheapest card will be cheaper than calling from your home phone.

Do you have Windows 8 up and running on at least one of your PC's? Did you buy it? What are your overall impressions? In your opinion is it worth upgrading - at least right now?

If you did install it, how difficult is the Metro interface?

@Nawab
Thank you.

@Humbert
Man, it's a dream! I love it.
It's very easy, not as everyone thought that it would be difficult.
Switching between the regular desktop and the metro interface is done in just 1 click of keyboard or mouse.
It's the fastest OS I've ever used! Search youtube for reviews, you'll find lots of videos there.

By the way, you can have it for only $14.99 if you apply!

You know I don't buy :P I downloaded the leaked MSDN ISO, then I managed to activate by phone using a leaked key.
I recommend upgrading, but after October 26th when it's available to everyone ;)

Nawab, you forgot to mention 1 very important thing!
To get this method to work, you need a MAK (Multiple Activation Key).
Lots of MAK keys leaked online, but most of them are already blacklisted by Microsoft.

Why not check out full-packs.com. These guys have the latest Win8 activation information as well as which keys are working as of what date, which KMS servers are up (if any). And all kinds of updated information on W8 downloads and activation.

I think I'll probably wait another month before taking the plunge.

Yes, I'm seeing you and Nawab are giving it very good reviews, which will prompt me to take the plunge a little sooner than anticipated. Just a few more questions - is any tile removable (or unpinnable) from the Metro interface, or are there some you can't remove? Can you remove your name in the upper right hand corner?

Was this a clean install or could you simply install it over 7 and keep the apps and configuration preferences?

I checked the site. This is only for those people who a few months ago bought a PC with Win7 preloaded (not my situation). Oh, and what difference is there between an MSDN copy and one which doesn't have that acronym on it?

I'll take you up on your advice and wait until 26/10 to upgrade.
