Apart from buying it with a new machine, is anyone going to bother to update their W7 machine with the new OS? I am not a fan of W7 and wish I stil had XP. Burning discs on 7 is a pain compared to on a Mac. Anyone tried 8 yet?


I installed 8 on a brand new machine, still got 7 on two laptops with no plans to upgrade. I stopped burning discs a long time ago once I got Mp3 player and carry everything else on a thumb drive.

As far as 8 is concerned, I find the start screen a complete waste of time. I'm trying to figure out a way to bypass it altogether and go straight to desktop. Please let me know if you figure out how. Also, I have not had any compatibility problems with the software I used on Windows 7.
