Windows 8 OEM will be $60-$80

Mostly because manufacturers still expect people to use sleep mode rather than full shutdown.

8 no question. 8 has performance gains over 7 in most categories and Vista ain't getting any further away from EOL.

What sort of ridiculous situation would you be forced to make that choice in? Windows 7 is a more practical operating system for desktop PCs than Windows 8, fact.

The only reason right now I would pick up w8 is if they have the discounted upgrade in the UK and I can use one of my old licenses.

Even then I would keep W7 as my main OS and W8 will just be for when I'm required to use it.

of course it is ridiculous. This was meant as a gun to the head kind of question. clearly that was lost somewhere between me typing and you reading. Also you look earlier in the thread i have already stated that I will just keep using 7.
