Hi dr yes, That article made interesting reading..! I have a Win 7 Disc(Not Upgrade)which I will try and see if it installs or not, that's after creating a System restore disc for Win 8 first :-)

I strongly urge you to give Windows 8 some time before considering a downgrade.

Once you get used to the tiled interface it's not that much different from Windows 7, but it's considerably faster. You can use the familiar desktop view with one click of the mouse, and the shut-down procedure is easy, once you get into the habit. Overall I much prefer Windows 8.
