    But Win 8 is not another Vista. Vista actually IS better than XP if you have a powerful enough computer--and most people didn't. 8's problem is the huge learning curve with the Metro desktop, but once you learn that, it is a good OS. And it is easy to bypass Metro completely and use the classical desktop.
    Part of the reason vista failed was the fact that the current time of PCs weren't powerful enough since not everyone wants to buy a new PC or parts for a new operating system. However, Windows 8 has a learning curve. The question is, will an initial learning curve be trumped over versus buying new hardware?

    And that, Coke Robot, is why MS has released this beta version so early. They want people to get used to the Metro Interface while there's still time. And, I predict that they will make it even easier to get to the classic desktop, which will greatly lessen the learning curve for 7 users.
