    USA still the best. But barely.
    Get on board folks. Everybody knows every other version of Windows is ****.
    So I'll wait for 9 & for the new Linux kernel that'll be based on. :D

    I'll be using Windows 7 as long as possible. I will try to skip Windows 8 as I did Vista.

    I'll wait a couple months but i will surely be rocking W8 even though i don't like the GUI. (I guess i will get used to it eventually) :D
    I'll wait until most apps are W8 ready. (The ones i use ofc)

    Nope, 7 works fine. Don't care much for touch screens. At least not yet. I will not be an early adopter of this. I know you don't have to use a touch screen it has a way to use mouse and keyboard. I will wait, I advise most to do the same. A wait and see on this one. :doubt:
