I still don't see a reason to upgrade to Windows 8 or Blue so far. Won't hurt anything to try out the preview, though.

I remember a while back I saw someone post a pattern of Windows. Every other release is good, so if Win8 was not that accepted, this one will be.
Still not getting it.

Windows 8 makes me tempted to try out some linux distros for normal use for a week. I think we might only have another ~7 years of windows 7 being viable for normal use. Maybe less for high end gaming .

Yeah, basically they sell a social experiment at first. Then after all the feedback, they make changes. They have to fail to improve.

Too many releases means I have to buy more OS(es) that I don't want. That alone displeases me... *I need them in order to learn them inside out so that I can fix the PCs that people bring me.

Well i wasn't expecting it to change windows 8 in way on the ui department so don't understand the whine really. I'll buy this blue thing that will add something on top of this w8.

Still no sign of windows 9 whenever that might come (2014 i guess), i didn't really understand why people thought w8 was even focused on work computers cause that was never the case just for home use. W9 should be then again focusing both :o

Microsoft did attempt to tempt or force desktop gaming users on to W8, by claiming that W8 will be the only version to support Directx 11.1.

Not all DX 11.1 features will be available on Windows 7. Quite a few will remain exclusive to Windows 8.

To be fair though, not many cards even do 11.1 though still, right? It really reminds me of DirectX 10.1 which was barely used.

Real problem is Windows 7 would never get say Directx 12, but that's a ways from now.

God damn guys, Windows 8's metro view is meant to be used on tablets and surfaces. Not on your desktop. Hence why it's called ''desktop view''. I've seen my friend use windows server 2012 with a surface pro (RDPed into the server) and really I got to say it makes me want to try it/buy it.

At the same time it's true that I'm an early adopter. so I'm used to the early rockyness of stuff. But damn you guys got to stop being so scared of change X_x

AMD Southern Island GPU is full DX 11.1 compliant. Nvidia Kepler has some DX 11.1 features disabled at the hardware level.
