I really have yet to find something that would compel me to spend money to upgrade from 7
Ideally Windows 8 is for computers with a Touchscreen, WOA (Windows on Arm) will revitalize the Tablet markets too.
We will see just how much Microsoft has riding on this OS, I think it's going to sell like mad to many vendors, as Apple has dominated many segments, Microsoft at least now offers a viable alternative to Apple products in the Mobile Markets... Windows 7 Phone isn't enough...
I don't really like Windows 8 for a desktop OS, it's just annoying!
I think Microsoft should NOT have scrambled everything, just like they did with Office 2007/2010, grrrr!
It's like learning a whole new piece of software, moreover, it does indeed take more clicks to do certain things which use to only take you 2 clicks.
Personally I think Windows 8 will fail in the Desktop markets to non-touchscreen computers.
But I could be wrong.
