You guys doing the upgrade on the 26??:dontknow:
Lucky ass mofo :lol:Have it running on a couple of test machines, but also have a Dell XPS 12 and a Microsoft Slate preordered to test out. Also preorderred a iPad Mini to test with. Love my job sometimes. ...new toys... :mrgreen:
And to littlefreak's question: the upgrade offer is $15 but you have to buy a pc with Windows 7 between June 2012 and the end of Janurary 2013 in order to qualify for this promo. Then you have to register online at windowsupgradeoffer.com but it has to be done before the 28th of Feburary.Is this a free upgrade? Or do I have to buy a OEM CD and load it?
I actually like Windows 7. No complaints here.
:+2:man, windows 8 is the gay version of 7. All the menu is tablet alike. Yep, windows 8 is the butt muncher version of 7. No start menu, no search toolbar. Wtf. Bill gates is smoking some fucking good shit. Metro ui they call it! Lol that shit is designed for greasy tablet not for desktop! Stick with win 7.
interfaces (monitors) are going touchscreen. It won't be long b4 you look at non touchscreen monitors like stone wheels. The devices we are testing on are all touchscreen. Even a 27" desktop version but mostly tablet and converatables. btw..you can turn off the win8 interface and get a win7 simular experience. That said, if you're happy with win7 there's nothing there to say you NEED an upgrade.Man, Windows 8 is the gay version of 7. All the menu is tablet alike.

I fixed the start menu problem last night with this: Startpro 8. Really awesome!Support for Win7 won't end for another 10 years so there's really no reason to upgrade. Win8 as said earlier has no Start menu, no true unified search, and no way to enable them easily. It's designed for touch so many computers nowadays won't benefit from it. Drivers for it are nonexistent in the aftermarket area, all are designed by MS or ported from Win7 and functionality is limited for a lot of devices that do the upgrade like Win7 was when it launched. I *still* don't have native drivers for some devices I use in WinXP, I have to either dual boot launch WinXP or run a XP VM inside Win7 to get them to work right. It may go down as another Win Millennium and Vista, but I don't know. I'll more than likely wait for Win9.
I think you can use the Win7 style UI. You don't have to go with the gey Metro. I've heard rumor that some current apps will only work on the older UI anyway. I hate when they mess with that stuff. I even liked the old school (classic) Control Panel view. Long, Long gone never to return I bet.Man, Windows 8 is the gay version of 7. All the menu is tablet alike.

Yea, the front-end largely is. Under the covers is almost identical. They did improve some of the kernel, better memory management and a few other odds-n-sods so it should perform a bit better on the same hardware.Just did a clean install of Windows 8 64 . Really smooth so far and looks good. Just need to re-learn everything..Menu and shortcut. Yep totally different than Windows 7!
