I got Win 8 for free (just like I did 7) legally of course through dreamspark. I just find it absurd those who get access to Windows 8 through a new laptop or gift,etc... who go back to 7 because windows 8 is this or that... It seriously isn't that big of a difference and if its the latter stubbornness is the only thing preventing the switch. Like someone not liking OS red because they like OS blue when they function more or less the same (which I've already detailed through previous posts in this thread). Its not like I'm a PR or Microsoft representative, it's just stubborn people that say the darnist things that really tick me [not that that is you
] Also of course laziness. I didn't switch to Win 8 till I felt like backing all my stuff up (which I knew I should do anyway). I was also afraid of driver issues but pretty much all the Win 7 drivers worked on Win 8 assuming they hadn't had an update for it. I also respect personal choice but stubbornness is a terrible excuse.
