The price for the "System Builder" Edition? The price for the "Full" edition, if such edition comes into existence?

At first I hated how Windows 8 looked and felt but after using it as my primary OS for about a month know I am starting to enjoy using it. They have made some very welcome changes to the OS. And for only $40 I might get the full version on Oct 26 mainly because that is cheap as hell, and I might keep it as my main OS and just have Win 7 on a backup drive just in case.

I've seen designs like that before back when Saved by the Bell was first on television. It didn't look good then it doesn't look good now.

People will think its a Corel or Adobe product. I swear, there's a Google mole in upper management that's steering the entire Windows 7 effort.

When first laying my eye's on this new Windows 8 box. especially with the white colored one, I thought to myself, now where have I seen a Windows box with a splash of almost the same colors and the use of squares? Then I went across my little office space, opened up the closet, looked at a shelf of almost every Windows Operating Systems I have, took out a box that I first thought looked like it, sure enough I was close.....



Granted a little different on design, but almost the same ques as far as the use of squares and color!

I know some will keep that box and to them it might matter. To me it is trash, literally will go in the trash like all the other boxes of things I have bought. Did I care what the box to my Logitech G19 or my Rat MMO 7 mouse or any other thing I have gotten looked liked when I ordered it online? NO! Packing like that matters more since I have to keep it for a time in case I have to return it for some reason. Since software can't be returned once opened that box will be gone the min I open it.

Looks fine to me. I don't know what all the moaning is about. It's a box!
