Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

Member since:

in the case of having an incompatible app like Media Center in your case or Microsoft Security Essentials in my case, you just have to uninstall the offending app. At least that is what I did for a Win 7 Professional upgrade to Win 8. Not rocket science and definitely a far cry from having to reinstall everything.

For my Envy 17 with Adobe software and Reaper the process was painless and even though I am located in Finland I was able to pay for the upgrade with my Australian CC. Just used Finnish Post Code with Australian billing address. I do wish though companies would offer better options with regards to multi country living and finance but it worked here.

As for the OS well shortcuts via keyboard in desktop are good and ribbon in explorer is the way it should be. There if you need and not otherwise. Thanking MS for getting rid of Aero too.
