Successfully upgraded Win7 Pro to Win8 Pro at midnight.
The whole process (paying [via paypal or credit card], downloading, creating .iso, then upgrade) took, all in all, 45 minutes.
*I have a fast internet connection and i7 with ssd so that helped making things fast but regardless of that, it went really fast (compared from Vista to 7 upgrade).

I'm still going to perform a clean install tomorrow, though. I want to see it / explore it / tweak it from it's default settings instead of from an upgrade wiith my settings saved (search disabled, indexing disabled, hibernation disabled etc).

Can you get Media Center for free now that 8 Pro is online? I am doing a clean install tonight or tomorrow....

You answered in the affirmative: Awesome thank you!

I did not receive my key yet so it's not yet installed.
