Thread Starter 
I am going to send a link to this thread to Microsoft, Redmond Magazine, and some other places so that Microsoft can see that most people will not buy Windows 8 because of its User Interface.

The 'Guts' of Windows 8 are fine, but with a User Interface like Metro it will be a complete failure.

The votes at this time are;

283 - No, won't buy it
68 - Yes, will buy it

I really didn't like the Consumer Preview and I'm quite happy with my Windows 7 install at the moment. At this point the only reason I would buy Windows 8 is if the rumors about it having a built-in Xbox 360 emulator end up being true (since my Xbox 360 died about a month ago). Then I'll dual-boot and use Windows 8 for Xbox gaming and Windows 7 for everything else.

That's a no for me.

I'm happy with W7. Unless W8 offers a significant performance advantage, I'll just stick with W7 until I NEED to upgrade. Also, if MS continues its Good / Bad path as they have done over the years, this one would be the one to skip.

Pretty much, this.

Would also like to add that besides minor improvements, Windows 8 is basically Facelifted Win7. So here's hoping that 7(6.1) has the longevity that XP Ha(s)d.

Metro has no business on a desktop. The only likeable things about windows8 are UI enhancements.. for example I like the new performance monitor. However this is a short list, definitely not buying.

window 7 is really good for what im doing ( playing in file ALOT ) I dont see myself using a os made for touch will doing the same thing that I do on win7.
( dont fix it if it aint broke I guess )

but even If I had a touch screen I wouldnt be using win8 , I hate touch computer ( my job have some )

Only way I would use it is on phone.

I voted "no". Because Metro is focused for the tablet market, windows 7 and windows 8 are almost the same thing, Metro belongs to the Consoles and not the PC market, so get rid of that imbecile looking metro page!

Edit: The only place that Windows 8 belongs to is all the windows phones.

No, I don't like the new UI.

Desktop users shouldn't have to go through hoops to adjust to a touch screen UI.

Also because Windows 7 is pretty decent still.
