Windows 8 - Home
We are now fully installed with Windows 8 at home. Been using it on my 4 year old laptop since CTP release (about a year ago)... and this past weekend I completed the multitudes of backups, installed an SSD for primary drive and installed Windows 8 Pro on desktop.
Like it even better on desktop (also 4 years old). Quiet drive, speedy OS, and clean install means 4 years of built up stuff is now not part of OS drive. Something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I've split necessary OS/apps and data on servers for 20 years... and it is finally time to be doing that on desktops. Not just separate partition - but separate drive.
It looks like my employer will also be moving me to Windows 8 soon... I thought maybe the new machine was going to be held back to Windows 7... but today's email made it sound like they were coming with Windows 8. Yeah! No going back now... baby!!
