having tried the preview I am not really certain I want the new Windows 8 .
My samsung netbook (Bios settings changed ) it loaded with an extra layer of tablet stuff which would not work until it fudged the screen resolution into funny shaped windows. The load onto my desktop again wants me to touch the screen ,, how many years has it taken me to educate people do not put your greasy fingers all over my display .. point but do not touch .. we now have Touch and smear by Microsoft !
At least we have an opportunity to Upgrade BUT why should it be more than the cost of the upgrade of those people who just bought a Windows 7 machine. Microsoft play fair please .. we suffered the Win Me , Vista debacle .. is 8 the next that we are being asked to pay for?
Last week I needed an old record from a floppy disk .. incredibly the win 98 cyrix 233mhz ( cyrix - that is a former Intel rival guys) laptop burst to life .. loaded up office 97 and I was surprised at how fast it was compared to the bloats today. Is Win 8 a step forward or a leap into a chasm?
