    I probably already know the answer but I was curious if anyone here was actually going to buy this steaming pile of shit

    I'll probably give it a shot. I don't have anything against Windows, so I think it will be interesting to see what it's actually like for how I would personally use it, since most people use different platforms and devices drastically differently. I'm probably going to start off with one of the Surface tablets and go from there.

    I get all my MS shit free through work, so I might as well give it a shot

    Nope, perfectly happy with 7.

    I jumped on the 7 bandwagon only because I was worried about being able to use new programs. Several years later, every program I purchase/download says it would run on Windows XP anyway. I'm assuming that will also be the case with 8.

    Honestly who out there wants to use a fucking touchscreen for every day use with their PC. This is like the 3D movies of the PC world. It needs to just go away. Let fun little side gadgets like the iPad handle that.

    I know you can still use a keyboard and mouse with Windows 8, but still. I have a couple of Mac products also and really enjoyed Snow Leopard, and when they switched to the new Mountain Lion thing it just got silly. If it aint broke, why fix it?
