Nope, no need for me to change. I'll be sticking with 7 for a while.
I just recently made it to Win7 after using XP since 2001, and it looks like I'll use 7 for a long time, since 8 seems to be geared towards tablet PCs. I tried Windows 8 Consumer Preview, hated the Metro interface and convoluted navigation to settings. Re-formatted my HDD the next day and went back to Win7.
Personally I am thinking 7 will be XP V2 and around for a while. I could very well be wrong as multiplatform across the board is becoming the norm and mobile touch interface OS's working across multiple units for a user might speed it up. I just don't need anything else right now and I also do not like 8's desktop at all!
From what I can see, the main reason why it has taken so long for Win7 to reach a 50 % adoption rate worldwide is the fact that in China, where many older computers are in use in computer cafes, nearly 70 % of the visits to StatCounter's network of 3 million websites are from computers using Win XP, while only 27 % are from computers running Win7 (http://gs.statcounter.com/#os-CN-daily-20080701-20120704)....
