Will You Be Upgrading to Windows 8?

So will you be upgrading to Windows 8 when it gets released on October 26th? I know I won’t be. I bought a computer in August and qualified to get a Windows 8 upgrade for only $15. I’m happy to get the discount, but I’m hesitant to install it right out of the gate, which is kind of unusual for me. I used Linux for a little while and was always excited to upgrade to the new release on its first day of availability. I’m sure a lot of that was also because I wanted to have a more updated software repository. As of now, I’m perfectly happy with Windows 7 and don’t want to disturb that until I have more confidence in Windows 8. I also don’t want to deal with the new user interface. I don’t completely hate it, but it’s more suited for touchscreens. I wish Microsoft gave the user the ability to boot straight into the classic desktop environment. Having said that, getting to it is just a click away.
