Subject: Tech: Windows 8 - reviews of general release
OK, so I bought a new computer with Windows 7 a couple months ago, which qualifies me for a $14.99 download of Windows 8 Pro. The download offer is good through January 31. So, do I want to install Windows 8 on my computer, or am I better off keeping windows 7?

I've been planning to buy a Windows 8 computer to donate to the women's center where I volunteer. This computer will be used for a lot of graphics work, with Adobe Creative Suite. Again, should I buy a Windows 8 computer, or hold out for Windows 7? One reason why I was waiting to buy the donation, is because I wanted at least one computer to play with that had Windows 8.

If you've had experience with Windows 8, can you tell us what you think of it? I'd prefer personal experiences, not just something some Windows-trasher wrote on the Internet.
