Can't wait! Aug15th it is for me then. I don't care about the nay sayers.
I don't care at all really as I use an Android phone I load my own OS"s and programs on and am fine with Windows 7 for the foreseeable future! Maybe next round !
I'm also staying on Win 7. Win 8 has "fail" written all over it. They should have just kept it as a tablet-only OS.
Only way I'm getting windows 8 is if i get a touchscreen, don't want it on my phone or tablet (touchscreen laptop maybe).
If the Metro user interface offers a disable option, then I will consider "upgrading" from Windows 7. I simply don't see an increase in productivity through the use of Metro. Otherwise if Microsoft plans to force the UI upon us, I'll find myself using Linux a lot more often.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to
them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
Good job on the prediction of the OS being leaked to a pirate site, and only 2 days before it happened.
Keep your eyes on the new Asus transforming notebook that implements the new software, Asus is a fantastic company and wouldn't be putting their time and effort if they didnt think that this OS could be a commercial successes.
Microsoft might have achieved that elusive balance between productivity with the incredible abilities inherent in a windows OS while still achieving the child like euphoria that captures the imagination of so many tablet enthusiasts, it might be a imperfect bond but thus far it would seem that Microsoft has spanned the gap and tethered productivity to Play.
