    With every version of Windows the driver "issue" becomes less of an issue, many drivers that have come out are unified drivers. This is also an advantage of Windows 8 and one of the reason Microsoft wants to use the same kernel across all platforms. A driver made for Windows 8 will work for Server 2012, Windows Phone 8 etc. As for jave, I don't recall that ever being an issue other than certain software that has been programmed to work with a certain version of java. It doesn't matter what desktop, laptop or server I am on I just go to the Java download page and click just works.

    FG you loose me. I agree with KAT here.

    I do not want to wear a suit every day, want to wear what i want;

    Same with my OS, so Apple is not for me.

    I like Windows for what it is, no mather what you or others think or say.

    Like the fact that you can change/alter/add settings programs whatever.

    So no Linux either (i have a DVD with Linux on, never used it, never will).

    Already bought 4 licenses Windows 8 and will install this this week.

    Only my pc will have to wait since I will be upgrading hardware.

    To each is own I guess.

    Yes, Robr, if only the metro could be resized, but i am sure a 3d party will arrange this.

    You guys might have to get used to VLC player or XBMC, I have been trying to get Win 8 Media Ctr to stop pixelating for days. This is an example of where the user should not have to muck around searching for codecs or whatever just to play a simple avi file
    Win7 on the same machine plays perfectly.
