I'll stick with 7 as it does what it needs to do. Surfs the web, plays game and movies. Why pay money for something I already have?

^ Couldn't have said it better myself. I'll be staying with Windows 7. Have thought about switching to Linux but not completely ready to make the jump just yet.

Yeah, the only reason I'm not using Linux is that is does not do what I need if to do, as soon as it does I'm there.

As long as I can create Rainmeter wonderful desktops I am in no way taking. I might goto a friend's place, see his copy and evaluate it for myself (since he is trigger happy on buying these things).

But the fact about search, and print screen is what I do use, and with that lost, I already am inclined against NOT using it. Since there is this floating thing about 5-10% performance improvement which I do need in encoding but not in games with Bulldozer, and if Piledriver has the same issue, I might consider upgrading, but print screen and search, both are very important to me.

Search and Print Screen are still there, but what bothers me is the way they changed it.

 

Instead of simply being able to just tap the Windows Key and begin typing for any kind of search at all (apps or files, it doesn't matter), now in Windows 8 you have to remember Windows Key + Q for Apps, and Windows Key + F for files.  I don't understand why they had to go and do that. lol

 

Then for Print Screen, now it's Windows Key + Print Screen.  I don't get it.

 

Maybe I'm going to far by saying this, but these are reason enough for me to not get Windows 8.  That would irritate me more than Huddler.  :)

I'll be sticking with Windows 7 at home, except on a laptop I'll install Windows 8 so I can learn it for my IT work.

i still on consumer preview win 8, but i thought i can tap windows key, & search the apps right away confused.jpg, as for the files, i just need click the files in the right pane, you also can do it in keyboard only.

i also don't need press the start button + print screen button to do the job, just press the printscreen button..

did Microsoft change it in Release Preview/RTM version ?

They didn't change it, you can just press the win-key and start typing. It splits apps, files and config into diferent tabs though, with the app-tab showing by default, but it does have the number of results behind each category.

Also, printscreen is working as usual, no need for win+prtscr. These things, at least, are things that shouldn't hold you back from switching.

That being said, for me the benefits outweigh the disadvantages of win8, and I'm sure people will/have come up with ways to make the disadvantages less noticeable/annoying.
