    Well for me, I don't hate it. I've used consumer/release previews, and in terms of speed, they nailed it i guess. As for games, I dunno, maybe if they put it into marketplace and force people to buy, maybe there'll be less piracy? Just a point of view, there can be many.

    I'll be buying the OS soon, though I really hope they'll solve game compatibility issues (for maplestory, one of them. And don't start firing me for playing such game!).

    Nothing wrong with maplestory buddy. It's one of the best looking games on the market.

    No one at ROG forums will give out to you over what game you play........

    I used the consumer preview too and found it strange at first and then got used to it and then liked it quite a lot.... some nice new features in there etc. but then tried to buy the upgrade and all hell broke loose. It asked me if I wanted to clean install and I did so.... went ahead and then found the key I bought won't activate it and then it crashed multiple times. Now I want to buy it, straight clean install and I can't!! Have to clean install windows 7 and upgrade over that!!! Bizarre. Can't enter win 7 key and then upgrade key for clean install which would be logical.

    What's a problem?
    After clean installation using created installation media
    http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html
    you can use this tutorial
    http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html
    to activate.
    Everything works! And it's legal according Microsoft statement about moving to another PC (if you stop using your previous OS)
    The REAL difference in an activation between installing Windows 8 on the previous OS and a clean installation is just one: you have to type your "upgrade" key one more time...
    It looks like this is why we will not see (?) a retail full Windows 8 because they already gave us a tool for an installation "on new PC" inside of "upgrade offer". And only amazon is trying to make money with Windows 8 system builder...

    +rep for the find! That is indeed a legit method of installing, and I'm glad to see that MS is getting rid of their pricing schemes (and too many versions of Windows).

    So that's how it works... Useful since I'm buying it soon like around this week or next maybe. The price would go up by next year right?

    I would assume not, but since I don't work for Microsoft, I cannot truthfully say. They have actually been lowering the Windows prices and cutting the number of versions, which I think is a good idea.
