How'd you create the different named groups like that? That's neat looking. My install is very sloppy and I spend most of my time in Desktop mode.

While on the Start screen, hit the little minus icon in the bottom-right corner of your screen. That will zoom out and give you a complete overview of all tile groups. Right-mouse click on each group, and click Name Group on the bottom.

I've been a fan of W8 since I first started playing with it, but my wife hated it. I can say now that it's growing on her and the more we use it, the more we figure out how many things there are to like about it. Took a swing at the music app last night. I'm a Zune subscriber, so since I was logged in under my Windows ID it automatically pulled up Xbox Music and allowed me to stream whatever songs are available on Zune. No Zune software install needed! The people app is a favorite too. Much cleaner looking than Facebook, although like everything you have to look and poke around a bit to see how it functions. Hell, you should have seen us trying to figure out how to do tabs in IE.

I have three HDD's two (2-SSD and 1-HDD). Would changing over to W8 be difficult? I'm considering a touch panel specifically for it. I don't want to have to reformat them and start from scratch. Will it migrate my drives and software?

Erm, that's gonna be hard to say. I had all my Steam games on a seperate HDD and when I formatted and installed W8 on my main SSD I only had to reinstall Steam and point it to the folder on the SSD. First launch on games requires it to "install", but that doesn't mean I had to redownload them. I'm not sure how your programs are going to fare. Most do a registry edit so those would need to be reinstalled. Files are normally safe. I tried doing an upgrade from desktop last night on my Vista machine and it got all the way to the end and failed. I ended up just doing a custom install from disk.

I upgraded from 7 keeping everything, and I don't have any problems. Just insert the DVD after booting your current Windows and follow the instructions. Just make backups in case you have to format.

EDIT: In case you're using XP or Vista, you'll have to reinstall your programs and possibly also your drivers.
