I wonder if they'll have some sort of upgrade freebie for those who bought new computers this year. Though, I have a touchscreen laptop so it sounds like I'd still have the metro version. My desktop doesn't seem like it would be able to handle another upgraded OS, though it might....

I have been reading rumors about it being a free upgrade, nothing confirmed yet though.

I just read an article that said we could see Windows 9 by Sept 30th. And it is about time.

It also said that MS was listening to us about it which would  be nice. While I think having icons for a cell phone is ok because the screen is easy to clean but if I am going to have a 24" monitor I won't have fingerprints on it.......lol

I still like my Vista because it was more like XP, but I will be so glad to get rid of Windows 7. 

I have not heard what kind of deal we will get as far as upgrades since I don't have 8.1 I probably wouldn't get one anyway. And I want to start out with new machines. I am getting old and they might be the last ones I will ever have. Anyway it is fun to think about........
