Windows 8 at its core is sound without any of the driver issues that vista had. Its stable and nothing major is popping out in the bug department. Now that aside there's also nothing major popping out in the advancement department. No major wow must have it feature or innovation that says yes i must upgrade. Add this too the fact that MS seems to want to ram the metro UI down everyone's throats without any choice and its becomes less compelling to upgrade. The last nail seems likely to be MS dumb as post pricing scheme. Can you think of any reason you want to upgrade and what feature makes that a must?
