Nope, I am waiting for the official release to be pushed to the store so i can update the proper way.

Not in a big rush here, I can wait for the official release, and as mentioned above, get it the "proper" way, just in case. Also like to wait a little bit anyway in case of any last minute problems or other surprises that might crop up, it happens.

Waiting for official release; installing it earlier is not worth possibly compromising this machine. I would like to run it alongside Windows 7, or, if I had my way, Windows Vista.

Couldn't have said it better. It'd be really cool if I could just use my free WMC key to use 8.1. Without hacks/workarounds, after all, it was a free upgrade key. But hey, that's just my opinion. I'm extremely interested to see how well it would run on my hardware, because I have both 32 bit and 64 bit systems, and I have used 8 successfully on my 64 bit system. It's sort of a toss up for me right now.

Yeah, not that desperate as to touch a leaked release.  That's gotten me into strife before.

For me the biggest thing is that I honestly don't have a problem with my computer right now it works the way i want it to. and I honestly cannot think of a single thing that is being added in the release that I care for.

Considering the source of the leaks, It's pretty safe to say that these ISO's weren't tampered with if you get them from the source however. I'm already using it as my production OS on my system and it runs smooth and no hiccups, activated and everything. Seems pretty squeaky clean compared to the 8.1 Preview build.

Nope, maybe, maybe - slight chance though - I might run it for test-purposes in a VM-environment.

The official release will be installed on day 1.

Why Vista over 7?

 

I'll probably wait for 8.1 if I get it at all, I'm in no hurry to leave Windows 7.

Think you may have gotten more honest results, or more voters, had you not made the poll public. (Y)
