    I for one am anxious to see what they've come up with. My guess is that it'll be something good. It'll address the issues that came with it's predecessor and allow everyone to move forward. I'll likely install it fairly soon after it becomes available. (I will give it a few days or so, just to make sure it doesn't blow up people's computers.)

    I'll let you know if my computer blows up.

    No one is complaining about performance and security of Win 8, most people big complaint is the GUI.
    Windows 8 is great, just needs a different shade of lipstick.:kiss:

    I'm not complaining... but making the performance better is always a good thing in my mind.

    Well I haven't had any problems with mine, it came as an OEM install on this Asus and it's done the upgrades without problem.

    If we get a beta to try out I'd have to do it on my desktop as I'd be able to split off a partition for it on there whereas on the Notebook I wouldn't be able to. It's only got a 320GB drive which came split with C: and D: but the upgrade put another partition between them as a recovery one so I don't really have the room to play with.
    I shall be keeping an eye out for developments.

    I would normally just drop a beta into a VM until satisfied it's stable enough to do proper testing - reason being at that time drivers are usually not yet compatible and boot type errors may ensue as well - having said that, the proper way to test it is on a real machine - which is also OK as long as a backup has been made prior.

    Seems the next few weeks will be longest ever...

    I think I'm going to put my spare hard drive in my desktop PC and install to that. I'll unplug the others and do a clean install. Then I'll just use my BIOS one time boot menu to switch between 8 and 9. No dual boot left overs to mess with.

    I think I'll try to set up duel boot.
