You didn't get this from me, but Win8 Build 1 is out!

Win7 has been so stable. Will Windows users adopt Win8 early, or wait until the next new computer buy? Should be a fun year once it hits.

If it were Apple, people would be lining up at the stores right now. :)

But, nah... People use Windows, they don't worship it. They'll just wait until they get a new computer.

People still use Windows XP, XP SP1, and XP SP2! (SP3 is the last update for XP.)

Makes me wonder what will be new in W8 though. And thinking about that, I hope we don't have to w8 for W8. :D :P

I really like Windows 7. But my computer is starting to feel really old lately. I probably won't be upgrading to Windows 8 until I get a new PC.

Is there already an announced ETA for when Win8 will be released?

Guess the most impressive part is the compilers they have to build, that don't choke on all the complex code constructs and still spit out proper ARM code, so they can run it on ARM-powered tablets.
