The next installment would have to be something special for me to leave win7 hence why ive not gone to win8 its just not special enough and lets face it its targetted more to touch screen than anything else
bingo.. If i ever switched to 8 I would be doing all of the registry edits and mods in order to make it as close to 7 as possible.. I think Microsoft is on a good track but the just fell short of what they really need to do.. like vista in a way. yeah Vista wasn't horrible but when you start talking about all the features that they had to redo with 7 to be less of a hardware hog then there is a huge difference..
I personally like watching version number Vista 6.0 7 6.1 and 8 is 6.2.. about the biggest thing that is keeping me from 8 is the effort + time/ lack of performance and features doesn't make it worth the hassel in order to upgrade
BTW the whole getting rid of the start menu was stupid. and it was solely based on the Microsoft reporting tool that most power users don't send in bug reports because they really werent bugs and the general populous that did are IMO walmart shoppers... people who just don't know
now back to topic and to integrate this back in.. does someone have a good OC that has both 7 and 8 and would care to run benchmarks to remove any heresay about performance is better on one or the other.. I know toms did one but I would like to see a couple more real world examples and if OC'in made any difference within the OS handling..
