    That's got to be one of the most inept reviews I have seen, looks like he did a quick search and skimmed a couple reviews that he didn't really understand and then wrote it up.
    He's confused.

    I guess the learning curve was too steep for him.

    would you guys recommend installing the 32 bit or the 64 bit?
    I am a power user, and, came back to wi7 after 6 years on OSX, so I am still a bit rusty with all things windoze..
    I like the idea of 64 bit, just wondering if that will lead to problems installing older 32 bit apps, or if win8 has solved that issue..
    thanks!

    I have Windows 7 x64, and have yet to find any app. that I wanted that wouldn't install. No 8 bit apps in that group of course x64 is the way to go IMHO.

    yeah, thats what I thought; just wanted a current "power user" to confirm it!
    now, just waiting for my email from MS for my 14.99 win8 pro upgrade I signed up for when I bought my new machine last month!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I think the author of that article had a dumb attack when writing that piece, or just wrote it after reading several "Hater" attacks over on Neowin or Seven Forums. . .

    Lol, Enterprises will have difficulty choosing which version...yea, that's so trivial.

    I don't get the different versions one. There are three for consumer retail, and one for the enterprise, called Windows 8 Enterprise.

    I'm already lost...
