    Some people don't like change. They would rather complain about the new and stay with the old.

    Keep up with changes or be left behind.

    As for me, I like Windows 8. It runs just fine.

    jbfoster. from my experience when XP was release their complains was fakes, the real reasons was ; their PCs was too obsolete to upgrade and they can afford a new one, this is what I experience at the time in my place, when at the time I have 3 computers stores. When they see the price tag, they start to say,,,,I will wait, XP is not reliable, it's not this and that. But when pirated version make surface, they all upgrade, $ 100 was too much for them too upgrade. This was a time where peoples was pirating like hell, they don't want pay for a software. Now time change, they don't repair their old PC or upgrade , they buy a new notebook instead. That's is if they don't get a phone

    I never used XP. For a couple of years I was running a pirated version of Windows 7. I then purchased two keys for Windows 7 off Ebay. I feel that $199 for Windows is way to much money. Now is the time get Windows 8 before it goes up to $199.

    That's not well conceived is it? change for change sake achieves nothing, change for innovation and design, change for ergonomics that fine to, but panic change because your losing market share is not the way to go. Windows 8, will in my view flop like their mobile 7 and 8 has.............

    You do not have to change to Windows 8. That's a choice every person will have to make. Some time in the future Windows XP and 7 will no longer be supported. You will then have no choice to upgrade if you want to stay current. I think XP support stops next year or 2014. Windows 7 support stops in about 6 years so every one has plenty of time to see where Windows 8 goes. By all means you do not have to upgrade now. All I am saying you will need to upgrade at some point or be left behind with unsupported OS. This is a fact know one can change. I would rather do it now for $39.99 then latter for $199.

    Like I said, some people do not like changes. They would rather complain about the new and stay with old.... This is a fact.

    I have always enjoyed all of the windows previous advancement's, just don't get this one, shame such a missed opportunity, I'm currently testing Mac osx86 Tiger VMware version, I'll probably stick with Win 7, and migrate to Linux or Apple, when the need arises! My days of putting up with Microsoft are coming to an end it seems. Microsoft's planned rundown of win 7 is far enough away though, Win7 I can't praise highly enough, it's only downfall as I see is buggy Internet Explorer 9, always falling over, having to uninstall and re-install, but other than that does the job very well, anyway that's my moan over.

    Oh great, one more time with this nonsense. Look, some people don't like change for the worse. It's not change, per se. The would rather not have to complain. Your flippant dismissal is rude and offensive. At least you didn't say "some people are afraid of change".

    This whole thread is nothing more than "i like it", "i don't like it", "ilke it", ad nauseam.

    I'm glad that you like Windows 8. There is no need to belittle people who don't.

    Again with the arrogant, flippant dismissal. Way to go. You're just turning people off and driving them away.
