I wish they would start from fresh rather than keep fudging the old system.

I liked XP and I also like Windows 7 but Windows 8 is one I shan't even bother with.

Sound like an Aldi advert.

I'm in the same boat as Carver.

As they seem to get every other one right and then mess up the following perhaps "Windows Blue" (code name for the next version) will be good.

Haven't tried 7 or 8 yet, have XP on desktop and 98 2000 pro and vista on laptops

looking to upgrade soon probably to a Chillblast Longbow, Orb or Lynx, but can't make up my mind whether to go for for W7 on a SSD or W8 on a normal drive.

I've got ubuntu installed on my laptop on an SSD as a trial run. Lightening fast and easy to use. I'm not going to upgrade my Win7 desktop, I'm quite happy with it as it is. Maybe if it goes horribly wrong, then I might put ubuntu on that as well. Mr. Gates can keep churning out his bloated OSs' I for one am not interested.

I have win 7 on my desktop with an SSD and its fast enough for my needs. I to am avoiding win 8.

I took advantage? of W8 several weeks ago when the price dropped to £49, albeit a pricing error.IMO a total waste of time and space However I am perfectly happy with W7

You need to try W8 on a touchscreen to appreciate its qualities.

I jumped from XP to W7 and am very pleased with it. I will not move to W8 for the moment.
