Yeah I'm mixing up my orders to a few different sites. Mostly NCIX.
I'll definitely try that windows 8 trial, Can you run programs and everything on it? Must be lots of limitations or bugs on it since its so new and free?
I do still want to give Linux a try out too. I heard it's better than windows in ways but it doesn't run games, which isn't really a problem for now because I haven't got the time to play until classes are over.

Yes you can run programs on windows 8 I have most programs running on it (haven't tried any games yet) the only program with a problem I have run into so far is LogMeIn for remote access to the computer. As for linux having no games it's a myth. Linux can run games but you have a very limited selection of games. It's like trying to find games for a mac.
