I think I will do the same. I am not an early adopter of MSF products

The problem with Vista/Win7 is that Microsoft broke a cardinal user interface rule. You don't change names or organization without a compelling reason that is visible to the user. We, the users have spent years learning the way to find things in Win95/98/2000/XP. Now Microsoft has thrown that away for no apparent reason. I hope that Win8 doesn't compound that felony.

I don't like Win7 so might try Win8 but ideally would love to be able to use XP, that was a good system! Kris

I guess that I'm old enough to have seen many initial reports of a brand new Windows version. And every time, they make it sound like the new version will be really different from previous ones. Win7 was supposed to have some kind of new moving or rotating windows, for instance. Now Win8 comes up with tiles instead of icons. Usually, although I didn't see it this time, you are promised faster bootup times. The reality I've noticed is inevitably much greater similarity than originally trumpeted, and bootup times that very quickly become a lot slower than they were in previous versions of Windows. Maybe the fault of virus shields becoming more intrusive, maybe the fault of additional enterprise network overhead for security reasons, no matter. The result is bootup times get worse and worse over the years. Not better. This in spite of obsessive cleaning of the registry, of the hard drive, and regular defrag. I'm becoming skeptical about these announcements. In a way, this is good. I skipped from Win98 to WinXP, and then from WinXP to Win7, without having to worry about any learning curve. The upgrades, skipping over the intermediate Windows versions, have been mostly painless.

It all seems giants playground, smaller companies can not have a stand on that field. Simultaneously it will be very tough to support all different flavors of ARM by an OS Company as hardware as well will be continuously changing. This will be never ending story...new OS, new Processor, new Technology all goes bit by bit and development goes on developing new things lets see who wins the next era.

The evolution of personal computer has changed drastically since the popularity of social networking. The interface of Windows8 helps user to focus on what they like to read and, at the same time, hoping to keep their focus of producing/working. The beginning of Internet era in the late 90s' have supplied flood of information. The social networking seems to give us (or someone) the control of how information is coming to us. Will the market accept the interface of Windows8? How do you like it?

Interesting to know that pictures will replace relatively small icons, I hope it wont make screen look congested.
