yep. Remember Win8 has been optimized for tablets and runs leaner than Win7 though - so it's good for older PCs and laptops that aren't super high end.

that's all we need, not a paint by number interface that toggles over to a gimped version of the classic interface when you launch 90% of the apps.

I've got a Chrome book that runs Windows 7, had Windows 8 on it for a few days, runs nice, don't like the interface and just put back on Windows 7 (which runs great anyways). Its too bad.
