Exactly how I feel.

After XP I just couldn't go to Vista, every time I used it it smashed my confidence by being flaky, noticeably slower, common functions obfuscated and hard to find. But, I 'wanted' an up-to-date OS all the same.

Then Win7 was launched and I got it on launch, 64-Bit Pro version. I love it, it 'just works', and you don't notice it.

With Win 8 - I just don't feel the compulsion to move. What I have works fine and Win8 looks like something suited to a tablet or smartphone that's been shoe-horned onto a desktop. I'll be skipping this one I expect (just like I did with Vista).

Can't wait for Win9!! Big Grin | :-D
