I'm in the same non-Windows 8 boat JMar. With an office full of Windows 7 machines (3 desktops and two laptops) I firmly believe in "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Every time I have upgraded Windows OS in the past, I discovered that my Cisco VPN software was orphaned by Cisco and Microsoft, or some other critical software item was left out or incompatible. Guaranteed to happen again, so I am quietly and happily an observer for this one. I also don't see how Win 8 could help in an office environment. It seems so directed at media and personal users.

And Chief, I am very glad to hear that you are in one piece. %$#! can happen so quickly and have a dramatic impact. Happened to us with a drunk driver and things took a 180 for awhile. Counting our and your blessings.
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
