      Ok thanks, I'd like to know your feelings and thoughts about it because i'm on the fence when it comes to new OSs.

      Yes be sure to let us know how it is APS. :) I haven't bothered with it since I generally wait awhile before upgrading to any new version of an OS. It's just always been my rule of thumb. :)

      I actually have Windows 8 installed in Virtual Box and it's a nice OS. The Metro interface is certainly an interesting concept. I'd be even more interested in the UEFI integration I've been hearing so much about.
