Win 8 is more than a few months away - the current test release isn't even a release candidate yet. And unless you're using a tablet, I question the need.

Agreed.

Win 7 was a major advance over XP. Vista had many of the features of Win 7, but was a bit of a mess. I think of Win 7 as "Vista with the problems fixed".

It's not clear that Win 8 will be quite so much of an advance for laptop/desktop users - much of the fanfare (and what's visible in the developer preview) is around tablets and touch-screens. On past Microsoft performance, it may be Win 9 before they get the new tablet features working properly.
