I am waiting for Windows 8.1 or at least 8.01 before considering switching permanently. After a trial period in a VM - where I really, really tried to get to like it - I have uninstalled it for now.
I started using Vista (in a VM at first, as usual) when it came out and had no such feeling when switching back and forth. It worked fine for me and the few interface quirks were easily learned - and actually appreciated as improvements. Moving to Win7 (after a trial period in a VM) was a breeze; another big improvement.
However, I found that when I switched back from Win8 to Win7 I had such a feeling of relief, like a constant worry had been lifted - that can't be a good sign.
- Life in the fast lane is only fun if you live in a country with no speed limits.
- Of all the things I have lost, it is my mind that I miss the most.
- I vaguely remember having a good memory...
