    Windows 8 is available now, does anyone have experience with it, is it worth a 69.00 upgrade to 8 pro?
    How is obama working out for you?

    It is very different than previous versions. Perhaps you could go to BestBuys or some retailer and play with it on one of their display machines.

    I have 3 good laptops, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to put it on one.

    I bet I could clone the drive in one of my computers and put the upgrade on that, I could exchange drives to see how I like it, my experience is that sooner or later you need to switch over to the new operating systems anyway.
    I might break down and buy a small SSD.

    I'm sticking with Win 7 as it's working fine for me and I don't need to upgrade anytime soon.
