It's like a James Bond movie intro on acid.

I like how they made it simpler and easier to use... yeah right.

But put me in the draw, overall it is a better OS...

I have a Dell laptop currently running a hackintosh build of Mountain Lion, and my wife is getting rather annoyed with it since not everything works as it's not official Apple hardware.

It would really help having a legit license for windows 8 so I could run that instead and not further annoy my wife with either having to run Ubuntu or put the XP COA license back onto it.

For my wifes stake.. Windows 8 would be brilliant.

What! There's a Windows 8 Now?!!  Is it like Windows 98 without the 9?

That box looks like the perfect book stop. And it even comes with a sticker? Bargain! Smile

On a more serious note, my desktop running XP could use an upgrade.

I can see from the confusing start menu and poor bin loading that this Win8 thing is short of a master filter, PM me and I can sort one out.

Would love to get this. My XP box is going strong but I need to leapfrog into the recent past if I can.
