Not sure what GayBen is on about here. Windows 8 has that goofy Metro thing which I despise, but it doesn't have the myriad technical and performance issues that ME or Vista had at launch. At worst, people will just pass it over for not being a big enough upgrade and that'll be that.
No one is gonna fucking switch to Linux of all things. I never pegged Newell as being that retarded, but I guess I was wrong.
