Those of you that don't like 8, is that based on using it on a regular basis for a week or two, playing around with it in the store, or based on online reviews and screenshots?

I tried the Win 8 preview edition for a couple weeks, using a dual boot setup on my Acer laptop - Win 7 or Win 8.

I really wasn't impressed. :nono2:

I have put Office 2013 preview on my Win 7 machine. It's fine, just takes a little getting used to. I'm still using Windows 2007 on my XP desktop.

I knew it was an introductory offer, but yikes...

Windows 8 Pro Upgrade going from $40 to $200.


I got an email from Microsoft this morning offering the dowload for $39.99 or the Disc for $69.99.
This offer is good until Jan 31.
