Awesome, I really enjoyed windows7 and personally dont even see a need for a new windows, but there are some awesome features in windows8, one of them being Windows To Go(http://en.wikipedia....i/Windows_To_Go). I guess what they are pushing for is portability and security, even though its aimed at corporations rather than individuals, I would hope that individuals can also get a chance to enjoy the feature.

Windows 8, IvyBridge, and a 600 series nvidia card. My next PC awaits.

Hmm, I wasn't aware of the next Microsoft OS. Sounds pretty cool.

IMO I think there won't be a huge upgrade from Windows 7 > Windows 8... This new OS is focused for the new electronic devices: Smartphones and tablets. As for a computer, I don't see a big difference just like there was from Vista > Windows 7 or from XP > Vista.

Always kind of thought that windows 8 was more of a transition into the touch screen interface market and appealing to the increasing love of the UI it brings. Don't think I'll be upgrading (unless I get a student deal of course), as I've had absolutely zero issues with windows 7. Lets hope there's an overly appealing feature for us gamers :P

The consumer preview of Windows 8 is out tomorrow, I'll try to post a download link for anyone interested. I tried the developer preview earlier and it was pretty neat.

It doesn't look like it adds anything I'd use, but I'd like to hear everyone's experiences with it. Especially our resident techies.
