Has anyone upgraded to windows 8 from 7. How is it if you have. I know you can turn off the whole navigation to make it look like 7 again but I was thinking of upgrading because I get a free upgrade through my school, and it's windows 8 pro. Plus I was thinking of getting the latest version of office.

I've only played around with it a bit, but two of my friends recently purchased new computers and after a week downgraded back to Windows 7. If you prefer the feel of smartphones and tablets, go to 8, but if you like the vintage OS, stick with 7 good sir!

Yeah I do agree about the linux fact. I have ubuntu on another computer I have and even though it is an AMD processor, I rarely if ever experience problems with Ubuntu, the only thing that stinks is that the software that I would use like for engineering isn't really available on linux which is why I have to have windows. If they made AutoCad Electrical, multisim, and uvision, and visual studio I would probably switch full time.

Decided to embrace the change and haven't regretted the choice. I like the feel, sometimes swipe, mostly mouse.
