I beta tested 8...
I backed it out, and in fact ended up doing a reinstall of 7.
I just did not like 8 on a standard laptop with no touch interface. They improved it a bit with 8.1, but from what I have gathered up, 10 seems to be what I want.
I am going to wait till MS does it’s thing..I don’t want any issues with the KEY, with installing it from a ISO, which I now have but have not used. I just want it for backup.
