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.

It isn't only that, I get a brand new OS for very little and as a web developer it is usually a good idea to keep up with newer tech.

Personally the upgrade process was almost painless. There were quite a few reboots (most were very short) and I had a running OS in about 30 minutes after I got hold of the upgrade media.
