    I had heard that too. It would be very cool if they do that. A wise move I'd say to try and get people off XP.... lets face it, it is going to take a great OS and a great deal for most to even consider it.

    Ubuntu anyone?? ;)

    Whilst I certainly don't plan on purchasing Windows 8 I will have a play with it once it's RTM'd (thankyou Technet subscription). I just think that Microsoft have taken their eye off the ball with this one and whilst the price is certainly more in line with OSX it's not enough to make me want to downgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
