I wouldn't be surprised if it did, but I expect them to go to at least Win 7 HB and Win7 Pro upgrade prices.

Yeah it's a really good deal I know what you guys mean. What I would suggest if any of you are on edge is just buy a copy or two anyways, and hang on to the product keys even if you wanna wait to use it when it's more updated

Got both my desktop and netbook up and running with Win8. I personally love it. No problems with clean installs on both, plays nice with all 3 monitors, feels fast and smooth... I have but one complaint. A lot of the apps require at least 1024x768 to run, and the netbook maxes at 1024x600 natively. Used a regedit hack to force 1024x768, but that makes the netbook crash. Other than that, I'm happy.

fyi for people upgrading to 8 over 7.. I did have to install punkbuster again to stop getting kicked in mohw... I would imagine it is the same with other games as well, but I haven't tested other games yet....

After installing no pbuster kicks
post #208 of 711
No (and I have tried it)

Basically W7 does everything so good I don't find the need. I tried a a few startmenu "hacks" but it just wasn't the same.

Until W8 has W7 start menu I'll stick with 7.

Yeah... it means that much to me...don't know why M$ couldn't include it seriously...

Doubt you'll ever see native support for start button even again, your choice is start8 if you need it that bad.
post #210 of 711
I took the plunge. Opted to upgrade over top of W7 instead of format and install fresh. I'm beginning to wonder if that was a mistake. Lots of my games will not run now, even after re-installs. redface.gif

Besides that, I added Start8 and I like everything so far. Going to try to stick with it for now and see if I can't work through my issues.
