    I clean-installed one and upgraded the other. Like I said, I knew what I was getting into. :-)

    If you don't like the new start screen, use Win7. That registry hack removes more than just the metro start screen (like the new task manager).

    did clean install,s w vista-beta's
    no thanks , i wait for final product

    no , task manager is still there

    0 removes metro
    2 keeps both normal + metro

    this metro stuff may be handy for tablets and smart-phones and such
    for a desktop its clumsy

    That looks cool. I'll pass, because I'm not a developer, and I wouldn't know what I was getting into :D

    im no developer either
    if you install on a virtual machine , there is no risk
    i use Oracle Virtual Box
    is freeware and compatible with win8

    Do yourself a favor guys or gals, upgrade to Windows 7, it is more mature and stable that that piece of garbage called Vista!

    Actually, we all should can Microsoft products and install Ubuntu instead, however, I don't think Adobe products run on Ubuntu

    On my new PC (running Windows 7)I went ahead and installed Open Office, let us see, Microsoft Office Ultimate, about $400, Open Office Free.

    Just my 2 cents (My wife won't let me spend more)

    Joe

    PD If you decided to move to Windows 7 from Vista, do yourself a favor and do a clean install, do not do an update from Vista!
