I have yet to see any benefit in moving to Windows 8 but there again I have not tried it, I have enough parts to put together an i5 PC lying around so may give 8 a try. But as far as I can see it is aimed at tablets and/or touch screen which is certainly something I am not remotely interested in.

As with the other thread you get it with the Minimum amount of Microsoft updates so it runs quicker.

Avg use to take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to run on XP.It took 5-10 minutes to run when first installed on the new W/7.
