no reason to upgrade, win7 working fine here. I'm quite surprised that dx12 isn't it in but wait, dx11 hasn't really taken off yet has it?

anyone remember the hype of dx11 and how round things would be round, etc...fail

Yes, when SP 1 comes out. I always seem to have issues from driver support to software compatibilities. Like earlier statements, I hate to be used in earlier trials of testing my frustrations on half butt work. (sometimes tongue.gif)

I will not.

Not sure if this has been said or not as I havent read all the posts, but guys remember, Win8 is MS's attempt to compete with IOS. They've stolen such a large chunk with their Iphone/Ipads and MS was still pushing Windows Mobile (r u frikkin kidden me?)

Anyway, I say No. I have a feeling they will fall on their face a bit on their 1st attempt to take over IOS and it may be stable but it also will probably still be cumbersome..

I would buy it once driver support picks up. I find that a lot of the software I use still use whitelists for OS's before they can install, even if they should be completely compatible.
