From all I have heard and seen from windows 8 it isn't worth it. It seems that they completely disabled the classic start menu now and it also isn't possible to boot into the normal desktop. It boots into that metro thing that is only really good for touchscreens or Kinect maybe.

No it's a scheme by MS and the OEMs to get people to buy hardware now knowing full well their old version of Windows will be obsolete in a few months by actually giving them a copy of the new Windows cheap.

Windows 7 will be obsolete in a few months, eh?

As far as new retail products go, yeah.
Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

$15 upgrade isnt that good of a deal. MS did better with free windows 7 upgrade for people that buy vista

$15 for the Professional version. Vista Home Premium -> 7 for free didn't offer that.
What's a sig?
