So, will you be getting Windows 8 when it comes out on October 26th? As for me, I probably will not. I am quite happy with Windows 7 right now and I am quite unsure of how the new "Metro UI" will suit my everyday needs. Perhaps it is ore suited for touch-screen enabled devices but for desktops and laptops it can be quite tedious to use. It really depends on how the public will accept this new change.
