I just grabbed my original copy of Windows 8 for KD19.900 which I think is high because you can download it directly from Microsoft for $39.9 (KD11.5) , the full version was officially released last night. I must say the installation went smoothly and took about 15-20 minutes max (thanks to my new Samsung Series 9 ultrabook). I had Wndows 7 already installed so all I did was upgrading.
The only issue I faced during the setup is that I had to uninstall some of the apps because they are not compatible with Windows 8. Currently I’m posting this with Windows 8 and it’s fast (unlike Windows Vista that was a total failure). I just have to get used to the total new Windows look, it uses the Metro design which is best for touch devices but not so great when using traditional keyboard and mouse, fortunately the option to switch to the classic desktop look is still there. So the million Dinar question, should you upgrade to Windows 8 now? Well I gotta say that I need sometime before I can answer that, but if you like to try new things and doesn’t mind taking the plunge then go ahead.
