I haven't gotten used to Metro, and I don't know that I ever will, at least with a mouse. So it's a no from me for now.

Yes, I plan on buying a Windows 8 ARM tablet.

For my desktop system, I don't have any reason to upgrade from Windows 7 Pro x64.

Never used Windows 8 before, but I think Windows 8 with my current laptop will be bad. Windows 8 introduces Metro and touchscreen and my laptop does not have a touchscreen monitor. Using my trackpad is bad enough.

So I'll stick with Windows 7. 99% of all future Windows programs will be still compatible with Windows 7 anyway. No need to upgrade.

Windows 7 is still great. I see no benefit nor a need for me to spend the money on a new OS.

If that need does arise, I will simply renew my technet subscription and go about it that way.

I won't buy it. In fact I haven't bought any OS in quite a while since Vista. I get them free at my college if I register to a computer class which I do anyways. But regardless of that it just seems like Windows 7 with android features which I'm not really interested.

I might actually try it for my HTPC which I think my 4 year old daughter will love.

Why is there no option for "I don't know yet"

As it stands, it is somewhat unlikely I will upgrade to Windows 8 and even more unlikely I will buy it (even I do like it, I might be able to get it for free). This is because we are forced to use the Metro UI. Also, as others have mentioned, Windows 7 fits my needs perfectly.

Also, I think the question would better be phrased "Will you upgrade to Windows 8?"
