I've been excited about every new Windows version since 95, but not now. To me Windows 8 is just Windows 7 with some really bad UI changes.

There needs to be a middle option, I'm not uninterested, but I'm nowhere near as excited as I was for Vista and 7...

I can contain my excitement. That said I am looking forward to trying out the Consumer Preview.

Apparently you don't know how OS development works. Did you think Windows 8 was written from scratch?

Excited? Not really. Disappointed? Extremely.

This poll is posted in the Microsoft Beta section though, so I think the results are going to be pretty slanted.

I'm as excited as I am to be at work. Here's a hint, that isn't very much.

With that said though, I do have a spare laptop around the apartment, so I'll probably end up seeing if it can run Windows 8 and I'll have a look around at what it has to offer and how it handles on a non-touch device.

As a developer, I'm looking forward to this very much. I can't risk any harm to my primary workstations, so I will likely run it in a VM via VirtualBox.

Not really excited about it, but might as well give it a try to see the changes done.

No i thought it came from Fairy dust and Stripped Cats. no crap dude but ther is so much new in windows 8 at its core and new features that it is not windows 7 with a Skin you people some anyways not all but some of you say this all the time you think when a new Os comes out and it has many many new features that all ya need is the look of the new OS on the Previous Os and you have a new OS

Punctuation would have made that rant much more readable.

For what it's worth though, I don't think I've heard many people refer to Windows 8 as just Windows 7 with a different skin. For me the UI change is probably the worst part, but I still understand that there are new features and I will give them a try. As it stands at the moment though, I think if I had the choice of buying Windows 7 or Windows 8, I'd go for Windows 7. Maybe the CP can change my mind though.

Definitely excited. I'll be ordering a new Lenovo x220t around the time the Consumer Preview releases and can't wait to try the Windows 8 experience with it.

Well on other sites or blogs i have read most users seem to judge windows 8 by the only version we have all tried and that is the Developer Preview and assume the Developer Preview is all they need to see. but in the end of the day this is what MS is giving us . i will install or upgrade if allowed on the consumer Preview just upgrade option see how everything transition over games + programs

Been following the Windows blogs and such and yes i'm excited. Skydrive integration mostly.Being able to sign in to your PC with your Live ID, backup your Docs to skydrive, and login to your other PC having them instantly accessible is just too great to pass up. Windows 8 is shaping up to be great and all my software and games work fine on the DP. With all the improvements I'm seeing you have to be pretty shallow to avoid Windows 8 because of the start screen.

Am I excited? Kinda.. Not NEAR as much as I was for Windows Vista or 7 when it was about to go beta. This time, I am honestly more worried than anything. Scared about the changes and how they will work. Honestly my wife and I have decided to get an iMac so we are 50x more excited about that than I am with Windows 8
