I'm think of updating my laptop to windows 8. It's not too expensive right now (30 until January 31st) and you get 5 lisences, so SO and I are wanting to switch over my laptop and his desktop. My dad is switching his over as well, though he mostly runs linux. We'll see.

I thought you could have the traditional desktop? Can't you just click the "desktop" key on metro and switch over to your "traditional" desktop - just without the start button, because everything you found under "start" is now on the metro.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

The computers at work have Windows 8. All I can say is the search function is wonderful. That's how we've found things so far, like, the calculator, desktop, etc. lol

It does seem like Windows 8 is trying to be more Apple-ish, however it's way more confusing!

Here's the low down. I am still learning so I thought this would be a better description. This was written before it was launched.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Thomas Jefferson
