I just built my new computer and am running Windows 8. I don't foresee any possibility of "jumping ship" any time soon. I have too much invested to go to the dark side.
If you are curious as to what is in my new computer see my profile.
I call Apple Care and they are sending me a free copy of Leopard, the correct operating system for this computer.
That is one place Apple is ahead of PCs. I took my Brothers one Ipod to the local Apple store and they gave it a shot, reloading the software. No charge. Sad to say it didn't last.
On the other hand It was free. So I got what I paid for.
I'm sitting here looking out at me street that still is white from Tuesday's snowfall. They plowed but it has been to cold for the snow to melt away.
