With all the fancy terminology these days, they call that sidebar thing in Windows 8 a Charms bar. How feminine sounding...

Keen to try it as a dual (or duel?) boot on my macbook. Windows 7 has failed to make it my primary OS, maybe Windows 8 will do better.

I guess all the Win 8 design work went into the design of the DVD cover. would be nice to try though..

I have it already, bought when on special, downloaded and installed.

I don't have it on DVD though. A new Windows 8 Coffee coaster sounds awesome.

To tell the truth I have no idea if the DVD replicates the external design - this is an unopened DVD so you risk getting a white coaster. But up to you.

Would it be witty to say I would actually like to have this?

I bought one less than I needed ;)

Shouldn't the light at the end of the psychedelic tunnel be "Blue"?!

When you think about it Win8 is a bit hippie compared to it's predecessors so that packaging makes a lot of sense now that I think about it

I want it because I can use the cover to hypnotise my children.
