If you like experimenting with computers (as I do):

- Do a system backup (I don't need to tell you this because you regularly back up your computer , right?)
- In Windows 7, go to Computer Management and create a new partition
- Pop in a Windows 8 DVD in your CD drive and install Win 8 in this new partition. I chose B:\ to be a rebel.
- Every time your computer boots it will prompt you if you want Win 7 or Win 8
- Use 8 for a (long) while including installing your fave programs.

At your leisure, decide which you want to keep.

A lot of what was released for Win 7 (including drivers and software) works fine under Win 8.

I am enjoying Win 8 on my touchscreen laptop. It took a couple of days to get it working well.
