I've had Win 7 for about 1 1/2 years.  A bit different than XP but overall I think I like it better.  I wish ever new OS did not decide for me what is secure and what is not. :(  Been debating trying WIn 8.  Don't know anuybody yet that has and I am sure it is still missing stuff

I didn't realize that Windows 8 was already released! I'm still nurturing my machine with Windows XP, and plan to replace it once 8 has been out for a few months. Hopefully most of the bugs will be out of it by then.

It is not released.  You can download a "Consumer Preview."  Just read an article today and like I thought, not being viewed as ready for prime time

Between ME and Vista, I am really hoping that Microsoft has learned its lesson about releasing operating systems that are garbage. I have used 7 and am really impressed with it, I almost upgraded my machine. But another reason I'm holding out a bit longer is because my printer, HP Laserjet 1000 (still in perfect running order after 9 years) will not work with 7.

No.  I have Windows 7, which I really like.  We have Vista on an older computer--that's got to be the absolute WORST operating system ever made.   Even if I were inclined to try Windows 8, which I'm not, I'd wait till the intial bugs are out of it.
