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.
