Go ahead and get the upgrade and I'll give you $15 for it, that way you can make a profit and I'll save $25 on the upgrade
At first when running Windows 8 in a VM, I wasn't impressed.
When I installed it in a dual boot, after using it for a couple weeks, the start menu and Metro issues faded into the background.
Enjoying the benefits and speed now.
I do use the desktop 99% of the time, and hope they add a boot to desktop option as many are requesting, even though I probably won't use it.
Windows 8 won't do as well as Windows 7 but, with new computer sales, including slate/tablets, and some upgraders, I think it will do pretty well, won't be a record breaker.
