Will it be worth the wait?

If it's as bad as 7 I wouldn't bother. (Vista lover now on 7 and hating it)

I am due an upgrade. Might wait for this to come out and then going to have a tower built to last me 4 or 5 years.
Whens Windows 8 slated for general release?

This is interesting because they are actually hinting at October this year - normally they would indicate summer, autumn etc.

October would also tie in with 3 years since windows 7 was released and they tend to relaunch every three years

Hi Mike,

I downloaded it a couple of weeks ago,after trying it out all looking at what is possible I returned to Win 7 and that's where I'll stay.

Win8 very similar to win7 except it is very pro touch screen and apps for a touch screen system.
