Post Windows 8 it shall be
I guess.
I'm gonna go ahead and give it a try I suppose. But if it screws up BF3 everyone gets banned due to my anger.

Really though. Some final thoughts on it from those using it now.
And should I do a full version install or upgrade? I always felt better about a clean and full install of an OS in the past.
I'm only doing it because I'm bored

Let me know how it goes. Being an IT student, I get free Microsoft software and got a copy of windows 8. I have been reading and heard you could get a pretty functional system with a start menu and other small bits. I myself am debating of switching over for the speed.

I had Windows 8 running, on two machines, one of them went back to windows 7, the other changed over to linux as of 2 days ago.

There are things I like about windows 8, but those things are in the back end, and things I can live without just fine. I do have it running in parallels on my macbook actually, but I've stripped that installation to hell, and it runs in coherence so I never see the "start" menu anyway

Not too encouraging I must say.

I've been running it since launch. Subtle changes, but I find it makes things easier to do. Definitely seems to boot faster as well.

BF3 works perfectly fine.

Make sure you do EFI booting if your motherboard supports it. It greatly improves boot times as well.
