Who's switching to Windows 8 once its released?

I think I'm going to go ahead and stay with Windows 7 unless windows 8 has something amazing that will convince me to upgrade.

I'm going to stay with 7 as well. I seem to be less willing to upgrade than most, I still use XP

I think xp and 7 have been the best so far... I'm on the same page, especially since upgrading ain't free either.

I actually never experienced any problems with Vista when I used it. Not too bad

But XP and 7 are my favorites, too.

I still have an unopened retail version of Vista. I run two XP machines and one Windows 7. I'll probably stay with 7 at least until the "Bug" list gets short or SP1 is released. I've got too much invested in software to be reloading an OS to fix something all the time.

Generally speaking, I don't upgrade current machines to new operating systems as I don't want to pay for a new license. 8 is going to have to come out with some great features, must have security, or otherwise I plan to stay with Windows 7 which has been by far my best experience with Windows in a long time. Why fix something that isn't broken?
