For the first week that Win8 was available, Microsoft made Win8 upgrade available for $15.(originally for those who purchased a Win7 machine after June 1 2012, but was open to everyone) I got in on that deal. Even though I installed it (and subsequently removed it), I'm sure I'll end up reinstalling it once some of the inconsistencies are ironed out.
FYI, Microsoft is also making Windows Media Center add-on for Win8 available for free until January 2013.
