Well, I don't have any issues with Windows 7, its a mature OS anyway so I don't even care if Microsoft ever releases a new SP for it, and its most likely a market ploy to get people to switch to Windows 8.

This is low even for Mircrosoft. They SHOULD come out with SP2 if only to make reinstalls easier and faster ... but that's the rub. If reinstalls were easier and faster, they know that Windows 8 users would be too tempted to GO BACK to Windows 7 after trying an OS that has few enhancements, other than starting up and shutting down faster (which if you are like me, happens only when you have to reboot because of patches), and a much uglier and less intuitive (for a non-phone or tablet) native desktop.

Read this first.
Now read this.
After you done with that you can try reading posts you quote and threads you post in.

Seriously, boohoo, 2 hours of downloading updates. Get over it. There's bigger things to worry about in life rather than a background operation on your PC that doesn't affect productivity.

*16GB of RAM to virtualize 3 OSes.

But yeah.

User friendly to normal people? LOL it's completely different to the previous version and literally no-one will find it any easier or any more difficult to use than the original Windows 7 start menu assuming no prior knowledge of it.

Some videos of normal users trying to use Win8: (I dare say that we'll see more of these when it hits retail)
The old classic
Another one

Normal users will get ridiculously confused by it, MS is concentrating WAY too hard on tablets and are acting like they'll kill off desktops and laptops..which they won't, they'll never have the power or convenience for a lot of work related tasks (eg. Typing on a keyboard vs a laptop)

When I talk about regular users I'm talking about people of a younger age, everyone I've shown it to in my age group think it looks really slick. They enjoy the fullscreen apps as they are not like you or me who feel comfortable with a million different windows on the dekstop. The fact of the matter is that Windows 8 is going to make desktops accessible to so many more people, even younger audiences will be able to figure it out with ease.

In a world where kids are born with a keyboard stuck to their fingers they will have no difficulty adapting to a new UI paradigm. Someone who is 80 years old is NOT an regular user, and they're the kind of people who won't upgrade anyway even if windows 8 had the exact same UI....why should microsoft cater to them?

Same here.

I'm a 13 yo very open to change, while the majority of OCN is not.
