[QUOTE=blegs38552;2657101]Been using Win 8 since the first preview. Took a while to get used to it, but I like it a lot now. Yes, a different paradigm, but how many people bitched at Microsfot for not being innovative, and when they are, they say not to change. I plan to spend my $40.00 on October 26th.[/QUOTE]
What is so innovative about Windows 8? I’ve installed the Consumer Preview and I found it to lack features of Windows 7 (Start menu) while giving me back only a few features I’ll probably never use and which probably are not sellings points for most people anyway.
The only ‘innovation’ I’ve seen is Metro. I understand how it works well on tablets, but I really don’t like it on my PC. If MS would allow me to just disable Metro and give me my Start Menu back, then I would be happy, but then again, then it’s like Windows 7.
The only reason why I still would want it is because I think Microsoft will push Metro and I’m curious to see what it will bring so I’d like to test some of the Metro apps whenever they come out.
For now Windows 7 seems a better choice for me, but I think I’ll upgrade if Metro matures and makes it worth it…
And else, I’ll probably be ‘forced’ when I buy a new Ultrabook
