And I'll be staying with 7 till 9 comes out.

The computer technician in me is crying right now. I am not going to be happy the first time I see a Windows 8 problem computer at work.

Yup. Can't find a solution? REFORMAT.

Not sure how any harder this could be.

Anyway, it's going to be a while before you see one at work, might see a lot more in the family circle tho..

Unless there's a very interesting transformer-like Windows 8 x86-64 tablet, I'll skip it too.

It's the fact that I haven't poked around Windows 8 yet besides the very short 15 minute run I had when the release preview came out, which drove me so far away from wanting to learn it. I'm going to have to learn it though, or else nobody in the store is going to know how to work with it.

I practically run everything computer wise for my relatives, they're not even allowed to know Windows 8 exists :whistle:
