    Go for it. I've been using it since the Consumer Preview; the RTM version is very solid, and they have already rolled out the first service pack. One of the things they did for Win8 was make it much easier to update the core pieces of the OS through their normal patch process.

    Users can also wait for launch on October 26 to download the system onto their computers for $40, an offer price that will expire at the end of January. PCs running Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 will be able to upgrade to Windows 8.

    Yeah, thought I had read that somewhere. I'd want final confirmation that people sporting OEM Win 7 are capable of upgrading too, cos that's what I have.. There was some MS written article somewhere and the MS employee answered a lot of questions in the comments, but never the dozens of questions asking for confirmation if OEM OSs are eligible for upgrade.
