Anyway, I won't be "upgrading". The enforced Metro, missing Start button and the removal of Aero are the main reasons. Also, I can't see what features W8 has over W7 that would make me want it? It's got some enhancements under the hood sure, but no killer features. It doesn't even have Windows Media Centre without paying more money!
On top of everything, Microsoft have removed the ability to do a deferred activation by entering the key at a later stage. What an insult.
It was such a handy feature too. You could just paste the key into the activation wizard previously, or use it in demo mode without one. Plus, who wants to activate on what may not be a final hardware configuration?
