are you upgrading to windows 8

So who is upgrading to microsoft new operating system, tell us your reason and why.

I will see my self upgrading in the future if all goes well, i tried the release preview and really liked it but had to downgrade cause of drivers issues.

Nope. No way, no how. Nyet. No, nay, never. Ain't gonna happen, even if donkeys and pigs fly. Win 8 is ok for tablets and, possibly, netbooks but for serious computing, it is too clunky.

Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64bit, Windows 7 HP 64bit
 
 

I plan to get 2 copies of the Upgrade due to the $40 price. I am dual booting with Windows 7 HP 64bit and Windows 8 RTM 64bit from TechNet. I will stay with the dual boot until I get all new drivers and software that are compatible with Windows 8 and do more testing. In the future I may Upgrade and stay with just Win 8 but not just yet.

I tried out the consumer release version of Windows 8 and with a few tweaks, the Classic Shell, thought it wasn't too bad. That being said, there isn't any compelling reason for me to buy the upgrade, as Windows 7 does all I need it to.

What kinda tweaks? Did you get rid of metro altogether? When I tried it last year I had no idea about the desktop thingy on it and only saw metro so I quickly uninstalled it. Still seems useless.

No, I couldn't get rid of Metro, but with the Classic Shell start menu, at least it was usable. However, it was definitely not as functional as the Windows 7 desktop, which is the reason I won't be upgrading.
