Is it backwards compatible with Windows XP software? (no?) Does it include a new interface with desktop and stat button? (no?) Does it cost over $100 for a FULL version? (no?) Will I be buying it anytime soon? NO!
for windows 8 user as a free update hehe ;)
or buy windows 8 for 49â‚¬ and update it to 8.1 ;)
Wow, David. Talk about misinformed. Holy cow.

how about no and Ill stick to windows 7
Can't wait for it to get here. I'm just wondering why Microsoft decided to hold-off for so long when the code has been done for a while. At least release it to those who have 8.0 installed!
Vista or 7 here 8 is not user friendly at all
AHAHAHA...Buying Windows. Good joke.
and another lol @the person here in the comments mentioning Windows Vista. xD
I just cant get into this OS...
I think Ubuntu did a better version of "reinventing the desktop" than MS. Apple did it best, though.
how is 8 any better than 7? 7 is only better than xp because of its higher ram capabilities
I will be pre-ordering... My MacBook Air arrives next week and I plan to be running win8.1 out of the box (yes I know I have to load OS X before I can install 8.1 through bootcamp, it's a small price to pay). I'm just confused about which version to get, it will be heavily used at work where all computers must be on our network to be able to do things like print and access folders and data on our servers which means I need Pro but I think our IT department isn't allowing personal computers on the network (he's a d!@? which is why I can't ask him because the answer will be "no" even if I can use my own device) but if that's the case and I need authorization first I won't get it and would have paid extra for Pro for nothing.
I already own a copy of windows7 but in 8.1 with the ability to boot into desktop mode and never use the metro interface (I will still occasionally make use of it) I don't see why I wouldn't want a faster more efficient and better at gaming OS vs 7. I love 7 but let's face it if you ignore Metro then 8/8.1 is better performance wise than 7.
Bought my wife a new computer that came with win8 and she did not like it at all and told me to take the computer back. Ordered and a new copy of win7 and now we are both very happy
