No reason to "upgrade", the improvements are negligible and metro is a train wreck.

Nope, I'm perfectly satisfied with Windows 7 x64.

Metro is a train wreck, and ribbon toolbars are worthless. The new UI seems to be pandering to people who don't know how to use computers, and that is a terrible way for an OS to go. I'm going to use 7 for now, though I like XP better.

Edit: wait how did 79% say no and 20% say yes? that doesn't math.

There is nothing on Windows 8 I really would need to upgrade to. I am perfectly content with Windows 7.

no because it's dumb and microsoft doesn't deserve my money for crappy software
post #590 of 680
Yes, because I just bought a new laptop and I can get Windows 8 for $15. Can't say no to that, it's another full OS.
