Will you be installing Windows 8 next weekend?

The new version of Windows launches in three days time, and lots of people will find themselves faced with an unfamiliar interface. It's bound to raise a crop of questions, and this is the place to ask them.

Microsoft has sold 630 million Windows 7 licenses to date, and it's going to be interesting to see how many people make the upgrade move. let us have your thoughts - positive or negative.

Probably next Monday or Tuesday. I am at work over the weekend. Then I find out later in the week the answer to my question which I think is below this thread.

Your thread may not stay below this one for long, and in any case I answered your question some time ago.

No.

On one computer, bought only in May, MS say it will not run, and on another, a dual screen, Win 8 totally disables the second screen.

I've just backed up a drive image of W7 to try it out on the 25 squid offer on Friday.

Idealy, I'd liked to have it on an now rarely used XP netbook, but the maximum screen resolution on that is 1024x600 and the MS site says that the requirement is 1366x768. So I'll have to save up for a W8 tablet.

Acer Aspire 5745PG. When I try to download/install I get a message that my computer is not compatible.
