Maybe if there were large and obvious benefits to Win8 over Win7


Well, Cakewalk, who make an audio sequencer, did extensive tests and found its performance drastically improved over Win7, less kernel calls, improved disk I/O, lower memory requirements, among others. That's why I installed it, and am so far pleased with the result.

I've come to the conclusion that developers are a reactionary bunch who don't like change. I put in from of my mother, a "normal" user, and she was delighted. I suspect it will succeed.
