    I am not looking forward to upgrading, as I've said so many times, but I think I am going to wait a bit before re-installing Windows 7. I am going to wait and see how the sales are doing. Not windows itself, but PC and windows 8 based tablets. If they will sell a lot of them then I've got a theory that there is going software companies are going to make an effort to make their applications compatible with it. That's my main sticking point right now. So much software and games I try to use on this thing has problems running (even in the compatibility mode). Photoshop for one.
    Hopefully Micro"crashalot"soft will fix some really *****ic things by that time as well.

    P.S. I am using Windows 8 64Bit right now.

    Not a chance. After having tried this POS for almost two months, pre-RTM... I have returned to 7... The only way I might have upgraded is if they allowed an option for a PC installation (Mouse, keyboard, power-users... you know, the folks that actually have work to do?) and an alternate Tablet (For the touch crowd. You know, for those just looking to play) installation. Maybe if a third-party makes a utility to wipe the ridiculous tablet-oriented UI. ...and I expect someone will eventually make it. There WILL be a market for it, believe me!

    I don't see any compelling reason to upgrade from Windows 7. I'll keep playing around with Windows 8 in a VirtualBox (with Start8 installed), but won't be making any OS changes anytime soon.
