While the Windows platform definitely has its pitfalls, I feel like everybody negatively commenting is doing so based on sparse rumors and short demos. I'd rather people reserve judgement until trying an official beta buil.

If it's like Vista or ME on release, can MPC use the same graphic with the words "of the end" added in red?  Thanks!

The only improvements I've seen between 7 and 8, so far, are small things they should plug in to a service pack. I probably won't be upgrading.

I'm confused.  Windows 7 kicks ass.  It does everything I need.  Why on earth would anyone need Windows 8 if they have Windows 7 already?

Oh well.

Just like XP, they'll break it little by little through monthly updates until they say no more support and everyone will have to buy a 'cloud' lease copy of Win8.

My goodness! I have to wait all the way till then? I was hoping for sometime sooner, rather than later. I am soo thrilled about Windows 8. Sigh, I guess there is nothing I can do but sit and wait.

I really can't believe that you want Windows 8...

If Win 8 is a new "begining" instead of a new "beginning", I'll pass.

Also...

"there hasn't been any official word from Redmond regarding Window 8's release date..."

Oops!  #corrections

I wonder if the code name for Win8 is Windows Apocalypse?
