I bought a lenovo x230 tablet, but to get handwriting recognition in my native language I have to upgrade to the win 7 ultimate version. Will I get a better version of windows 8 if I do this?

I can already get win 8 pro for cheap via win upgrade offer, but I don't think that has my language either.

There are only two versions of Windows 8. The normal "Home" edition and Professional edition. You can read about the differences between them on the Building Windows 8 Blog entry that explains the two versions.

I can already get win 8 pro for cheap via win upgrade offer, but I don't think that has my language either. 

What makes you think that? This offer is going to be offered in dozens of countries and over a hundred different languages.

You gain nothing by upgrading to Windows 7 Ultimate when Windows 8 Professional will have the same language support Windows 7 Ultimate has currently.

As long as one can install extra languages, display languages, via windows update in win8 pro. I'm all set. –  Algific Jul 6 '12 at 8:12
