I'm still pissed off at them for not allowing me to upgrade or even purchase a standalone version of Windows 8. I live in Bolivia, why can't I purchase a DIGITAL GOOD using something like Paypal.

Every other online business accepts my hard earned money, Microsoft doesn't. Fuck 'em. (Pardon my french)

I really really wanted to go legit and buy myself a copy of Windows 8 but not legal paths are provided for me.

can you buy a copy from amazon and get it shipped?

The thing is: Why should I?

Why can I ilegally download a Windows 7 .ISO, apply a serial key and have it work?

Why can't I do the same for Windows 8 legally?
