No i will not buy it, i cannot see any reason to leave win7. and after using the win8 beta on a standard and touch screen pc im not sold at all - Windows 8 is the the new Vista- "one big can of fail"biggrin.gif. Im also very dissapointed about the changes to development tools/software for Windows 8. I have been an early adopter of all windows since 2000 but i will certainly give this one a miss. microsoft dropped the ball on this one - then kicked a lot of developers in the nuts!! well done MS!!.

For the record: Win 2000 == greatest version of windows, ever. Period. Don't group it with vista smile.gif

Also, no one seems to remember this: XP at RTM was horrible...horrible...more hated than vista is now. It was only after SP2 and it being in use for so long that everybody decided it was some kind of super-great...damn kids...lawns and what-not...

I will. I think that, after I get used to it, I'll actually like it more than 7.

I think I would go on for online education like you tube or discussions boards before purchasing windows 8. There are may sites there that offer online education and I can say that they are very useful on deciding what to buy smile.gifthumb.gif

nope there is no need as im happy with 7. I tried out for about 2 months now and i have to say a waste of time..... i will not be using it and i will not be recommending it to friends/family under any circumstances. The UI is to much of a change and is designed for a tablet not a mouse using system.

No, but only until gaming support is dropped from Win 7.

I will.

I have been using the developer preview off and on and I have to say it wasn't that hard of a transition to get used to.

Not having the start menu button wasn't bad at all. Ended up just putting a shortcut to the control panel on the desktop just in case I needed it.
