    But will you upgrade -- that's what the OP was asking. You haven't said you will - or even implied that you will.

    My decision was based on the fact that it's now stable on my machines. There is classic shell to fix what I was missing but ultimately it's going to be hard giving advice for an OS I don't use.
    You're still showing up in the poll as a 'Maybe'.
    Hit the 'Unvote' then vote again.

    Only so he give advice on the forum.

    Same reason I have it.

    Hardly a ringing endorsement.

    I don't consider it an upgrade in any sense.

    I intend to use win7 as my main os.

    That is probably why Smarty is not saying yes.

But that is another matter. so far I really like windows 8 pro. this laptop had windows vista on it which was terrible until i upgraded the ram to 2gb but then was tolerable. windows 8 pro is much faster and seems more stable than vista ever did
    Woah you need upgrade your laptop altogether. There's acceptable & there's superb. To each his own however.

    Stormy I couldn't agree more with everything you said.

    It is a well known documented fact that Win8 runs exceptionally well on older hardware.
    Gives new life to old hardware that ran slow with even 7 on it.

    Not exactly how I feel. I think that Metro apps are garbage because they cannot be resized to my liking and they take almost my whole screen. Once you can resize a Metro app top to bottom and side to side...they will become more usable to me.

    Yeah stuff like that too. Overall, the new UI in the start screen is very appealing. Now it's time to capitalize.
