    Love8? I have bad news for you, this will stop functioning once the beta is out, and the beta will die when the RTM is out.
    SO to keep it, you'll have to purchase it.

    Yeah I know and what I meant is that I won't go back to Windows 7 no matter what they put in the final release. And I mean it.

    I installed it on a laptop the day it was available. Worked with it for a couple weeks but kinda set it aside until some sort of Beta is available. I didn't want to fight with things that will ultimately be changed/improved.
    It's interesting to hear the overall favorable opinion from those who have stuck with it longer than I have.

    One can easily confuse "favorable opinion" with the "Stockholm syndrome" for those who have "stuck with it the longest".
