I bought the online upgrade to Windows 8 yesterday; only $40. Of course, I first did an image backup of my C: drive; after the Windows 8 Preview debacle, I wanted to be able to restore my system easily to Windows 7.

After the download, I saved the install as an ISO file, extracted it, and ran setup. It did the upgrade from Windows 7 quite well, but I did have a few snags after that, and it took a System Restore and some fiddling to get the system booting again. That may have had something to do with some software I'd just installed.

So far...ho hum. The new Modern UI is a bit odd, and I don't see a benefit yet. The loss of the Start button is an irritation. Otherwise, it's much that same. I guess I'll see how it goes.
