"Make sense". That means different things to different people.
Win 8 has a radically different look when first booted that most people find frustrating at first. Many, including me, find it a major step backward in usability. It's not exactly made for a mouse and keyboard user.
I assume you can still get the preview and give it a test ride if you want.
If you can't stand to be without the latest, never mind if it's the greatest, go for it.
If you have a more practical mind set, you might not be amused. I can't think of any over-riding reason to go to Win 8, but anyone who buys a new PC a few months from now will likely be forced into it. I expect to see major bitching and moaning at that time from those who have not previously tried it.
