Still, though, good work on Microsoft's part. No matter what their strategy for getting Win8 out there, it's working. And reviews are quite good this time around too.
Yea I bought a $14.99 upgrade, tried it, all kinds of stuff were hosed (video playback, network connections etc) and programs that were supposedly compatible weren't, the Windows Media Center pack failed to work properly.... let's just say I uninstalled it and am back on Windows 7 for the foreseeable future :(
