So who's planning on moving to Windows 8 when it comes out in around October I believe, alongside the Microsoft Surface, Microsoft's first attempt at tablet and computer hardware under their own name. Will you be buying a new computer to get Windows 8 or will you be merely upgrading your old laptop or desktop computer? Did you skip Windows 7 and will upgrade Windows 8 from XP or Vista?
I've always been happy with XP, and would keep using it forever if I could, but Microsoft is going to cut it off sometime in 2014, so I guess I'm upgrading to Windows 8. Gonna try to get the professional version so it'll last a few years longer before Microsoft makes me switch yet again.
Now and then I fill up a hard drive and go buy a bigger one, and I hit that point this spring. However, I've decided to combine the two moves by limping along for awhile on an almost-full drive, and then this fall I will simultaneously get a new hard drive and switch to Windows 8.
So this will mostly be an upgrade. But since it'll be a brand new hard drive, it'll be a clean install.
