Windows 8 should've been called WINTOPIA.

There are a few interesting new features, such as storage spaces, but forcing metro UI just kills it for me. I won't be buying Windows 8 any time soon, if ever.

I think the transation for redoing the whole UI is moving to fast for regular people. Windows 8 should come with an option to use the windows 7 UI with a touch of the Windows 8 UI. The start button has been with windows since the begining of time. I think the transition should be a little bit slower.

When does steam come out for Linux again? Windows 8 has me seriously thinking about switching to some Linux distro.

What if I have files and settings that uses WMP? Would I get WMP for free?

Win8 still has WMP. Media center is missing in most versions though.

You also forgot to mention if we're going to be able to do a cleam installwith a Windows 8 upgrade disk. I'm not doing a uprade install of 8 over 7. Dis that with Xp to Vista and half my software was flaky until I did a clean install of Vista. If we can't do a clean install upgrade, they can keep 8. I'll stick with 7. I very well may stay with 7 anyway. I don't see enough improvement's for my desktop pc. The thing's I use most frequently I already have the same version of in 7. Windows Media Center - no new version, less feature's and have to buy most expensive version of 8 and then rebuy what I already have. Windows Media Player is still 12 minus dvd playback. They still haven't added blu-ray playback. Gaming in 8 is getting to Xboxishly tamed down, too. Metro is o.k., but the majority of app's are wonky at best. Then productivity has left the building also. Only 2 metro app's on screen at a time Business are really going to love that one, as are most hard-core pc user's. Then there's the extra un-needed/un-wanted step's to just about everything we all do now.

You forgot the upgrade path from Windows 8, Wipe and install Windows 7.
