Default Re: Windows 8 or 7?

let's all give win8 some time to grow.
It's new. i am sure it will be way better after it's first service pack.
i am really looking forward to the Windows app Store and the "Storage Spaces"
i am gonna stick with Win7 for now, but eventually i am sure that i will upgrade to Win8

Exactly they hated it when Win XP came out, but now they won't stop using it, To me XP now is just boring, Hopefully Windows 7 & 8 will be able to run programs that only XP can and everyone will finally move on from XP..

I find the interface to be counter-intuitive on a non-touch enabled device. It seems that they are poorly adapting a tablet OS to desktops and laptops.

I think they need to redesign the desktop version of Windows 8 which would take a lot of work..
