Since I purchased my new laptop recently, I get Win8 for $15. Don't know if I will install it or not.
Really? I didn't see a performance improvement at all, especially with non- MS apps. For example, running Chromium browser would drop out of metro to the traditional desktop and THEN start. It was way slower than running it in Win 7.
