Like complaining about a smart phone you will never purchase. Why worry iffin you ain't a gonna to go there?
I'll avoid the upgrade unless the final release is workable. For me. So far, Microsoft has a way to go.
For several reasons, Bob. One, because the Microsoft juggernaut continues in retail and Windows 8 will be the only option for new PC's at point of sale. Two because, being in IT, I am eventually going to have to support the machines that run it, or use applications that require it. And, finally, I give most new OS's and updates a run, just to see what I am likely to be up against.
For the record I never liked the ribbon bar introduced in Office 2007, because I was so used to 2003's menus, but once I embraced it by necessity, I did find that I tend to prefer it now. Maybe Metro will work the same way. I can't say. I do know that I have still yet to warm up to Unity in Ubuntu.
