    Note: If you want to install 8, it's probably best if you do so in a virtual machine. There have been reports of files being deleted. If you still want to install 8 on a physical machine, do so on a secondary. If you don't have a secondary then make sure you have backups of all your files and install via USB or DVD and not setup.exe from within Windows.

    Hoping the UI is a bit different. Windows Vista and 7 almost looks the same.

    That's the best part for me. Except the fact when it's final it's boring and I'd be waiting for Win9.

    So...it's basically a totally revamped, Windows Phone 7 inspired, much improved version of Windows 7?

    Instant buy.

    I like the fact we're getting a nice new UI but the whole 3D thing, I've never seen any good 3D Desktops, We'll just have to wait and see I guess, Can't wait for screenshots.

    A little off topic, but does anyone remember the name of that program Microsoft offers where you install a program that monitors how you use Windows during the beta, and at the end you get a free copy of it?

    I'll try the beta out when it comes, but I'll probably not buy the OS in the end, and if I get the OS in the end, I'll probably obtain it for free. No warez, really.

    I hope the UI does keep some common features that are native to windows. I don't want sit there after the install has completed and not have a clue on how to use it.
    Oh, and Mac stole the app store from Linux. Ah but its open source, you can take what you like from it and get away with it!

    I think Windows 8's design needs to tie its self in with the Metro design on Windows Phone 7 and the new Xbox dashboard. Rather than the boiled sweet look they currently use.

    I'd really like if windows just would rewrite their whole OS from scratch, and then a emulator for the exe files. which would make windows a faster and most probably more stable OS when all bugs are fixed while maintaining backward compatibility.
    yeah... I'll just keep on dreaming :smug:
