Has anyone gone through and completed this process yet? Is it possble at all to make the purchase, get your unique Windows 8 keycode, download the installer, and at that point stop? I want to have a legal copy of Windows 8 at this great price, but I am not yet ready to make the switch (or maybe decide later that I actually want to install it on a different one of my machine's instead.)
Yup. Downloaded the downloader thingy, paid, then made a bootable USB drive and .ISO file with the downloader tool. Oh, and grabbed the free Media Centre upgrade offer too. Nice to be able to make use of the $40 deal instead of $70+ after January next year.
I'll probably buy a couple more product keys while the price is still nice and low.
Yeah, I bought a couple of copies at the discounted price just to keep them on hand.
