this is tarded... ^^^^^^ how much do you really want them to do? 99.9% of their user base wont use win8 till its released(oct 26th) which they will prolly make good on.. im guessing the majority of users after that still wont be using it by the 1st of the year.. how much do you really expect them to do? if you read around there really isnt any problems with NT on win8 right now anyways..

Maybe updating the technological bases occasionally. The problem would be less if they would have upgraded to .NET 4.0 2 years go or so, and if they would fix the "small amount" of installer glitches they have, installing files in locations MS has not planned them to do, among others.

Not really sure. I do software for a living for customers, and regardless of product plan, we always test even against beta versions to make sure.

Btw, you are TOTALLY off regarding their customers. There is this little detail called "buying a computer". Guess what computers in most shops will have starting October 26th?

MC apparently.

Friend of family (son in law once removed, sells for MS) showed me Windows 8 on his smart phone a few months ago. Knowing what it is I do he said I probably didn't want it--just reconfigures the desktop and a few other things (he said)--good enough for me. It's the "few other things" rather than the desktop that has me worried--Windows 7 is dumbed down enough without insulating me even more from machine code. MC claims no issues with it but altogether no interest in upgrading at this time. I'm sure NT will test soon enough.

Are you using any third party indicators that require activation based on either the machine id or a the provider server?

I had a customer call me yesterday asking for a new key as he'd moved to Windows 8.

I figured I needed to bite the bullet @ that point as I'd like to know the issues before the customers do.

It all runs fine, I did lose my Ninja database when I moved but not the workspaces. Actually worked out nicely to be honest.

I'm not sure about performance yet but will update after a week or so...
