All those 4/500% hike headlines seem a bit sensationalist to me. They did say at launch that the 25 price was only going to be available to early adopters, and the new price is fairly comparable to Windows 7's launch prices, as far as I'm aware.

I certainly think it's a bad idea, given the fact windows 8 isn't exactly setting the world on fire at the lower price, but I don't think it's unexpected by any means.
