Windows 7: name change?

name change?

I recently joined SevenForums, but now considering upgrading to win8, can i use the same name when i
join windows 8 forums? I am going to take advantage of the sale price for the upgrade, and try it, if
i get to frustrated with it then, hell i will dump it and go back to win 7. From all the post i have read
on win 8 , I have a 50/50 chance of liking it.

thanks for any replies.

I'd hang onto 7 until you're sure you want 8, then backup 7 as an image in case you want to go back.

Under the EULA you need to stop using Windows 7 once you use it to qualify for activating Win8.

If you decide to delete 7 then be sure to save the backup image externally. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Yes, good suggestion, i spoke w/ my brother this wkend and he advised that he upgraded
and is not experiencing any problems.In fact ,he said he was enjoying the new operating
system and considers it a challenge to learn win 8. we are both retired and have time to
deal with the frustrations win 8 may throw our way...

thanks again for the advice and all the welcomes from all members
