    No. But after you've been assimilated, you'll realize that you're better off in this Brave New World.

    Win 7/Win 8 CP Dual Boot

    My Win 7 is getting very Lonely. I am on Win 8 CP 100% of the time. I still have not decided if I will purchase when the RTM is released. That will probably depend on the pricing structure. I was very happy with Win 7 as well.

    I do not miss any of the features missing from Win 8 CP. I spend 99% of my time on the Desktop UI.

    Vista and Win7

    I like Windows 8. But for what I am doing, I do not yet see enough new innovative function to warrent spending money on it.

    Agreed whs. For me, the only new things I see or use on a daily basis are the new Task Manager and the new file copy popup screen.

    Other than that, I don't use Metro and don't plan to, unless there comes along some seriously good or fun app, which I doubt. It has to be so good that it makes me re-enable UAC and that's just not going to happen lol.

    I can't really think of anything else new since 7 that I use or see, at all. As I've seen said, this should be SP2 for 7.

    Then you would have a revolution if all the Win7 users suddenly 'lost' their Start button

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit), Linux Mint 17.1 MATE (64 bit)

    I think GMan meant the actual W8 improvements (e.g. reduced RAM usage, improved performance) not the pointless GUI changes.
