I have been working with Windows 8 since its (legal) RTM availability on MSDN, and unless Microsoft *SIGNIFICANTLY* changes the interface for mouse/keyboard-input business PC users before its public release, it will die faster than Vista. DO NOT encourage anyone to wait for this latest OS – it’s a killer – in all the wrong ways. …just sayin’

There is a great option to restore the ‘feel’ of previous Windows versions and adds some great new features – Try Winstep Xtreme  – you can download your copy here free.  I’ve been using it for over 10 years now more as ‘eye candy’ than for productivity, but now I get the best of both.
