We're only 6 days away from the Windows 8.1 Preview. Time for a poll: What's your upgrade path?

 

I will update to the Windows 8.1 Preview, then to the final (I come from Windows 8).

I'll wait for it to go final. I've never been keen on trying alpha/beta/dev/preview operating systems.

Have to admit I'm not that "hyped" for Windows 8.1, but I'll see what's new.

Gonna upgrade my Surface RT to the 8.1 Preview, maybe even my laptop, but not my desktop until the final gold bits are released.

Jumping on 8.1 as soon as it's previewed. This is going on my laptop (only choice :p) so it better be decent otherwise i'm giving up! :angry: So far I haven't tried any of the leaks yet so this will be the first swipe at it.

I'll be upgrading to the preview :) If I need to reload when it goes final, then so be it. I have backups.

Depends on which system I'm on, but yea the ones that are running 8 will go to 8.1 once it goes gold... although I may toy with the preview version in a virtual machine or one of the test rigs out of curiosity.

Don't know just yet. I will wait for it to go final first, then install it on my secondary laptop to see how it is. Only then if I like it and decide it's worth it will I install it on my main PC.

Sticking with Windows 7 until StartIsBack and Bigmuscle's aero glass implementations work on 8.1 then I will give it a try, if I don't get a repeat of the problems I had with Windows 8 I will stick with 8.1

Same here. I do like to try new things but only when they are finished.  :)

I usually get betas and RCs of new Windows OS releases, but I'll skip it this time.  Windows 8 works fine for me as-is, and I can wait a couple more months for the new additions and changes, plus it'll save me an OS re-install (though I might do it anyways; we'll see).

I'll try it out on my desktop in vbox but I might install it on my Samsung ativ tablet since I don't have many apps installed on it so when the final comes I can reinstall the few I do without much issue.
