Windows 8 -- Later Versus Now!!!!
I have two relatively great Windows 7 computers with i 7 processors, and I will be content to wait for up to a year to really see how things work out for W8. I don't see any immediate reason to update. I don't expect to buy a new computer for at least one year or possibly longer, so will be content to stick with W7. W7 is the best O/S from Microsoft so far, and W8 may be better, but most W7 users will likely stick to W7 for the foreseeable future. If you are using a desktop, the so called Metro interface may not be as desirable as the actual desktop that we have now with the start menu. I use the start menu pretty frequently for programs that I don't actually want to put in the launch area. In about a year, we should know if designing the interface the way they did is a net negative or positive. If for some reason I have to buy a new computer and decide to stick with Windows, I will not have much choice. One thing that Windows needs to do is cut down all the background services that they have running. They are selling a home user basically same computer as they sell business, and we have very different needs frequently. Even W7 can be extremely difficult for a home user to fix when things go wrong. They probably need more human factors added to the O/S
