I sure hope not. The upside is that if I stay with 7 I'm plenty happy with that.

Vista wasn't that bad. Overblown discontent more like it, and that was only because MS changed the way drivers had to be written and everyone's system became unstable because of it. It was a bit piggy on resources, but not an issue for NVN members with our hardware.

true, but in eyes of consumers it was a failure, windows 8 will be even bigger failure.

Makes you wonder if they do it on purpose so that the next version will be a monster seller. Microsoft own the desktop market, so they can put out as many OS fails as they like and people will still be forced to by it with new hardware.

Excuse me sir, which computer out of the hundreds we stock would you like? We also provide a choice of OS's. Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Windows or Microsoft Windows.

After the SPs it was fine for me. My brother is still running my 64 bit ultimate copy I gave him with my old rig.

My main gripe with what I'm seeing so far in Win8 is that none of these links/apps have to ship with the OS.

When I set each of my daughters up with laptops facebook and a few other sites were bookmarked within seconds

Browsers make it easy to have a metro like start page, icons and all.

The control panel....how hard is it to access? Like 1.5 seconds if I miss the icon no need for a link on metro for it.

etc etc etc.

I'm still willing to give it a fair shot after we see what the final build looks like, I just don't want metro staring me in the face on every boot up.

and more important, metro should not replace the start menu

Agreed. That was unsaid, but I consider the start menu as part of the DT experience, which is what I want to see on boot.

true, but those type of apps shouldn't be needed in first place. I hope MS gets the hint.
