Don't even think about it.
I'm an IT professional, one of my jobs is to recommend to my clients whether to upgrade OS or not.. I got the special windows 8 offer, installed it, tested it and I had to go back to Win7. Windows 8 is NOT a business OS at all, too hard to use on a regular computer, keyboard short cuts make no sense. It's actually made for tablets or touch screens, with a mouse???? forget it, My client employees will be crying Carpal Tunnel Syndrome faster than you can say it. It's such a shame that Microsoft has gone away from businesses... I guess I'm hoping for an Android solution......
