Never play games, never store pictures or music, use email and about a half dozen websites. Just want to use it to access QuickBooks and WordPerfect.
    Wow. You must have the world record in less interest and less functions used in a computer ever.

    Nothing wrong about it, just funny.

I have 8.1 running in a VM and like the ability to boot directly to the desktop, MS should have included that ability from the get-go. I haven't found any Metro apps that I find worthwhile so don't use them.

    I am perfectly happy with my Win 8 laptop but don't intend to upgrade any of my Win 7 machines to Win 8.
    Other than the gadgets for Windows 8, I don't have 3rd-party apps either; the start menu from seven I missed for couple weeks, but by now, I don't need it. I do agree with you about the apps, none of the default apps installed worth the screen space.

    My laptop will get the 8.1 RTM, currently using the preview version only. The chances are that my Windows 7 desktop will get it as well, provided that I can locate the licenses keys for my programs.

    It's rare to see a thread about people liking W8, instead of beating on it in an endless loops. After all, this is Windows 8 forum...
