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.

Actually if the troll knew anything about system internals or how processes works then he would know that one advantage Windows 8 has over even Windows 7 is its "on demand" services subsystem, that activate services ONLY when they are needed and stops them when they aren't required. This is on top of the new audio subsystem that came in Win 7 which was designed for low latency and better mixing capability.

I too use effects for my bass on Windows, and even with a half a dozen effects loaded into Audacity its all fast and clean, gotta give MSFT credit for that, they did make Windows into a killer DAW.
