Windows has a special deal going on right now where you can upgrade your existing Windows to Win8 for only $39 online (or $69 for a disc in participating retailers).

Now, I was wondering if it was going to be worth upgrading. Is Win8 worth the 40 bucks for the upgrade?

nope. im just basing my thoughts on what ive read. the differences ive seen arent overly impressive. not denying it is better in many areas, but it has to be sufficiently better for me to consider it worth the extra money.

Have you tried Windows 8? It's a very big change from Windows 7, so it really depends how well you get on with it if you think it'll be worth it.

I have my system dual booting Windows 7 & 8, but 7 is still my main OS for now.

considering windows 7 costs 100 and 8 is 140, it looks like they just charge you the difference. however, IMO, no, its not worth it. faster boot times are nice, and there are a few minor positive aspects to it, but personally, id only get it if it became the price of windows 7, i was looking to get a new computer, and i needed it for compatibility with newer programs (which wont happen for many years anyway).
