Windows 8 Upgrade Diary: What To Expect

Dear Mr. Gates, take your operating system and stuff it. I've got a Mac and I'm using that from now on. Unlike your OS, theirs works.

Yeah, the millions of companies using Windows workstations and servers, must be blind, not to notice that it "doesn't work"
Very intelligent observation that was.

Spoken like a true MAC-Head with pretty much no knowledge of how a PC or OS works. What you fail to realize is that Windows can be installed on virtually any brand of PC whether bought off the shelf or homemade. Try that with a MAC OS and see how far you get. That in turn fosters competitiveness which drive prices down and quality up. It also makes choice much broader. MACs are no better or worse than a Windows PC. They are however too proprietary and highly overpriced. The fact that Apple finally realized Intel made a better processor than Motorola speaks volumes. Now if they'd just loosen the reins a bit and let developers build on their platform they might actually be able to compete. After all, it's just a glorified UNIX base system which has always been open-source.

It's got nothing to do with Bill Gates, it's Steve Ballmer's baby from inception. Educate yourself, fanboy.

you can take your mac and shove it. I am happy with Linux and Windows for my computing needs.

Is is 32-bit or 64-bit?
I upgraded from 64-bit to 64-bit and wasn't asked for a preference, it was automatic. I don't know what will happen with a 32-bit OS but I do know from experience that Win8 RP and RTM had 32-bit versions.

Speaking of not knowing how a PC or OS works. XP CAN be upgraded to Windows 8. See Microsoft's website:
Unless what you are trying to say is that you'd have to reformat your drive for Windows 8. Because it uses a different format. But you certainly didn't say that, nor indicated you even knew that. So I'm guess you just don't know what you are talking about.
Also when Apple switched Mac OS X to 64-bit (a few versions ago) you could upgrade and keep all your files.
A 32-bit system can be upgraded to a 64-bit system. All that has to happen is the 32-bit binary system files be replaced with 64-bit system files. As long as your machine is a 64-bit machine capable of running a 64-bit OS.

You know what's an even more intelligent observation, although a bit meaningless. Most people don't understand computers; and seems how Windows has more market share more stupid people use windows than stupid people using Mac OS. :-P
