So many future Linux users I see in this thread as they're surely never going to cave in and buy an OS that just has one GUI environment choice. rolleyes.gif

This thread shows just how much people fear change (whether for "better" or "worse") and that they'll all eventually cave in when they realize Win9 will continue down the same path. What's scary is they'll eventually grow to love the GUI they hate right now because it will make living with their belief of having no alternative that much easier to accept.

No. I am not computer illiterate, I will never own a tablet, and I hate the UI. I could fill 2 pages of other reasons why, but I'm not wasting my time on this OS Microsoft. 1960's visionaries won't get by in this century. Put the drugs down, get clean, and listen to your customer base you idiots. /too much

Eventually I will I'm sure. Just see no reason to move, Win7 is the best os that ms has done yet. Vista was utter fail. XP was solid, but troubleshooting issues with it is nowhere as simple as it is in 7. Windows 7 is the only ms system that has actually saved my boot drive when it got corrupted. How many times did I get a corrupt boot in XP, and tried to repair it but never got back up without a clean install? Um, every time. I actually screwed it up again today trying to overclock, and went through windows repair and was back up in 5 minutes. I have the install on a thumb drive, just plug it in and repair whenever I get in a jam.

Anyways, yeah.... only thing that will get me to switch, at least on my HTPC, is if Microsoft finally does something new and good with Media Center. I would love to be able to customize media center to my likings without using 15 various programs to do it. Doubt there will be much improvement, but i'm hoping I guess.

  • I don't care for the new UI, but if they continue the trend then I would cave.
  • on another note if they release the next DirectX on win8 and it has significant and beneficial changes, I would buy it.

Not going to switch from what I saw in the demo release. Didn't like it at all. If decent performance gains start to be realized with it then I might change my tune, but I just don't see a reason right now.

I was an early adopter of both Vista and Windows 7. How's that for fear of change? This old tired argument of "you don't like windows 8 because you're afraid of change" it's not even an argument at all.

I won't be using Windows 8 because I don't like it, not because it's different. As for Windows 9, that's too far ahead in the future and not worth thinking about it now.

I am a creature of habit, and windows 7 is awesome.

if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

No.

Not fond of the dual UI stitch job, and no other feature justifies upgrading from Windows 7.

No. Windows 8 is built for tablets not computers and if Windows release it as it is now I will most likely not buy it until i have tested it to see if it is any good which i doubt it will be
