is a few days away.

Thoughts? Are you going to upgrade? Used anything with it on pre release? etc.

I'm going to be buying a new gaming laptop soon. So I guess I'm going to be stuck with it?

Already running it on my laptop and in the form of Server 2012 on my server. Used to the metro start menu now. Storage Spaces is pretty neat.
once upon a midnight dreary, while i pron surfed, weak and weary, over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot  xxx galore'. While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, " give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404.

As I've gone over many times, I have it running on both my main PC(Enterprise x64 90-day trial) and my ThinkPad X61 Tablet(Release Preview x64) and plan to buy an upgrade to 8 Pro for both.

It made everything run faster on both and I've come to get used to the new layout of things as time goes on.  I actually like the tiles apps too although I don't see myself adding too many other ones.

I can't wait to see how it runs on the SSD I have for the ThinkPad, I used the hard drive just to try Windows 8 out on it and the SSD is sitting aside with 7 still on it

I've seen on them innernets people say (and others then confirm) that Windows 8 has no desktop environment and cannot run your old programs.

Please keep uninformed bullshit away from this one guys. Your inane disinformation spews out into the real world and now I have to persuade people Vista hasn't been sold for 3 years every week.

Windows 8/RT/WP8 is fine, if they pull this shit off it'll be a force to be reckoned with.

Once comparability issues for games get ironed out it'll be great. As an OS it's very fucking fast, just having an issue with some games I play.

Also my keyboard doesn't have a windows key. Start menu is a pain to use without windows key.

It's a good OS, and ill def upgrade once everything I use is compatible.

I love the base app updates they're coming out with.  There's a lot less errors, everything works and the apps respond much faster when opened or switched to.  Lots of new features too like cloud support in the music app

MS always fuck up every second version of Windows so I'm just going to wait for the successor of Win8.

How much longer do I have to buy a new Dell before they cut Windows 7 completely?

That or when will Win 9 be out to unclusterfuck Win 8?

Windows 8 Pro digital upgrade's $39 from MS if you're interested (though I'm not). Been seeing a lot of driver issues around the net for it.

Yeah I got that offer emailed to me.

Think I'll stick with 7.

Only thing I like with 8 is when copying files you're given more detail about the speed and you can pause at any time.

If you pull out the USB while copying by accident, its.automatically paused and can be restarted from where you left.

Other than that....
