I have tried Windows 8 for the last 4 or 5 months. Although I don't dislike it. I find no reason to update my netbook, laptop, and HTPC's. They gave me nothing new with media center, so I will keep my money and take another look at windows 9.
Pffff EVERYone knows that ALL Desktops magically get touchscreen capabilities when windows 8 is installed! Microsoft isn't THAT stupid, that they would promote a touchscreen singletasking interface on desktops! ..
