    Hey Jimbo, just a thought, but remember Paul was "blind" for three days after the Dam road experience! Then he awoke from the dream and came to his senses! LOL!

    So would you be applying that quote to Microsoft itself? Or the users?

    I think I read that for a limited time anyone can upgradefrom Windows 7 to 8 for $39.99. It might have been on this forum that I readit, but I'm not sure. Is that correct?If so, I'll probably upgrade.

    Meant in the sense of 'blind' by upgrading ... and awoke to see the light not to use it!

    At first I said, "No". Then I said,"Maybe". Now I'm saying, "Yes." It's not because I thinkthat Windows 8 is so great. Actually, as of now I prefer 7. But, what the heck,doing the same old thing with your computer sometimes gets boring. At my ageit's good to exercise your brain as it is your body. Actually, at any agethat's a good idea.

    How about an option for "Yes I can't wait" separated from "Yes because I have to but not very thrilled"? A lot of us will HAVE to upgrade simply because we MUST take whatever MS is going to foist on the public. This'll be the VERY FIRST time in the history of windows that I am negatively enthused about an upgrade. If I mark "Yes" on the poll, that will unduly reflect positively on the situation. I know a lot of people in that position...
