If you have windows 8, you can just go to the microsoft store and download it. I will give my impressions about in once it is done downloading.

There is nothing really wring with windows 8, it was just not worth no where near $100 to upgrade.

I know, I'm just joking.

It works pretty well for tablets, but I didn't really enjoy using it in non-touch laptops and desktops.

You can get hacks that will hide the metro UI junk and give you a start bar again.

http://www.startisback.com/ <- you have to buy this one but I hear it's pretty worth it.

http://www.classicshell.net/ <- this one is free

there's another free one but the name escapes me at the moment.

So I have been messing around with 8.1, and it seems like a pretty minor update with some decent usability upgrades. Also it feels like it boots even faster now, especially my start up programs.

I'll grab it later.
I really like 8, but our new PC is has a touch monitor.
For phone and tablet I'd say 8 is way better than the iPad or Android OS's.

I'll get it just for the faster startup. That's all I need. Though I might just put it off another month.

I saw on newegg the actual windows 8 retail is like 120, it would save the hassel of calling them up if you were putting it on another, instead od 99 for the OEM, I think you can have the retail on up to 5 pcs at once or something, or maybe I read wring way back

Pretty sure you can only have one PC with windows per key.

nah retail copies of windows can be used on multiple PCs, but they're more expensive.

Was waiting until 8.1 to switch over, all because of flippin BF4...

I guess its time for me to start packing up files in my PC and get ready to reinstall everything. Never really trusted upgrade.
