Same here. I'm thinking that if someone comes out with a decently specced tablet that runs W8, I'll probably get one. The tiled interface I've seen so far seems leaps and bounds over anything else out right now. In my opinion, W8 on a touch device is going to overshadow all other touch interfaces. I have a gen 1 iPaid and really hate doing anything web related. Lack of Flash is a true hinderance.

However, unless I have need to actually replace my desktop/laptop and it already has W8 on it, I don't see any reason to update.

I'm more than happy with Seven, it's a good operating system.

I am still enjoying Win 7 (still learning). If Win 8 is directed toward the cloud, I wouldn't be interested at all.

I wouldn't mind being one of the pre release testers.

I'd have a reason to get another SSD to install it on.

Considering the pricing on Win7 I'm not sure anyone will be able to afford a retail copy of Win 8.

Win7 Pro actual retail is $265. Suggested retail is $299.99
Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Professional

That will put W8 at $350-400 if they go as they did before with XP to Vista and Vista to W7.

Looks like W7 for me.

I won't be upgrading any of my PC's that are currently running windows 7. If I buy or build a new system I may byte if the price is right. ;-)

Hells yes! I'm stoked about using the new UI, like the Start Screen and maybe the Windows Explorer Ribbon if that's designed nicely.

And of course, the streamlined video performance and the better security features that might make it into the RTM.
