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.

Hmm, well I've done upgrades before with programs and data. Usually the data is fine but there always seems to be issues with programs so now I'd just do fresh installs . It's a pain mind but less of one then the other. Wish it was otherwise, but that's what I'd advise.

I agree completely, and as I said to HappyGod I wouldn't be surprised if all of his issues are due to upgrade quirks that anyone could encounter. My sole issue is with his insistence that his test is 100% infallible despite using known hacked software.
