Window 8 is being sold for 39.95 until jan31 2013.After that it will be 199.99 for it.Go to Microsoft to get it.I like it but up don't have a start menu know more. It done with apps.This is a big hassle. To get your start menu back go to classic shell and download this and get your start screen back. I have to have that menu. I think now I'll keep window 8.

Everyone I know hates Windows 8. If it's not broke, no need to fix it. They should have left the start button alone. They try to split the windows interface to both sides of the screen.

It's very painful for inexperience computer users. Windows 8 will not last long...it will eventually flop.

I've been struggling with the decision to upgrade my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 8. The $40 price is tempting but I've read too many stories online about people who hate 8. It may create more problems than it solves, and I can remain as-is for free.

If I were buying a new computer, I'd probably go ahead and get one with 8, but I hate to risk screwing up a system that currently works.

I'm with Bradley. I think 8 might be the next Vista.

Windows 8 much worser then Vista. I hope Microsoft has more products to sell, the stock probably going to take a hit eventually. Desktop and Laptop sales are down any ways.

windows 8 may be nice for touch screen computers. But the software not worth $40, I rather use the mouse anyways.

I will agree with you people I liked window7 better but I seen the price 39.99 and I bought it.But I loved the start menu. So if you want your back the start screen go to Classic Shell and down load it.And get you start menu back. I think it will flop also.

They took a simple concept and went crazy with it. With all it's changes can the average Joe set at the computer and 20 minutes later understand it.

I'm always looking for more & free programs to test.

I agree most people looking to upgrade, windows 7 the way to go.

You people seriously don't like Windows 8? Is it too complicated for you? I also have Windows 8 and have yet to encounter any problem/s with it either.
Either you never gave it a chance or you are scared of change.

I just bought a laptop with Windows 8. If you had asked me the first hour...I would have said I hated 8, but once i got the hang of it....I liked it. Just takes a bit of getting used to. I am in my 50's never touched a computer til my 30's so if I can do it I would think anyone could.
