Subject: RE: Tech: Windows 8 - reviews of general release
Well, last night I took the plunge and bought a Win 8 upgrade for my Win 7 computer. It cost me only $14.99 (today was the cutoff for that), plus another $15 for a backup CD.
But now I'm having second thoughts. Windows 7 is working so well for me - do I really want to go through the hassle of switching to Windows 8 and getting everything to work under the new operating system?
I guess I should. No doubt we'll be buying new computers at work over the next couple years, and it will be helpful for me to know how to use Windows 8.
Later....so, I installed Windows 8, and I really like it. The installer transferred all my programs and settings nicely, with a minimum of hassle.
