I am not feeling in the mood of change right now. At work we use Win 7 as main OS with XP on VMs because the software we use simply don't work in the new versions. On the other hand, I still have customers with Win 98 running in their maschines, so I don't see a big change in a while.

I would not mind to test it in private computer, but I have no private computer at the moment.

Speaking about preferences... I don't really like the appearance of Win 8 very much, but I know this is just a matter of getting used to it.
Regards.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
