    Microsoft to offer dual upgrade path for Windows 8

    Microsoft will change its upgrade procedures when it introduces Windows 8, offering a simple system for home users and a more technical option for IT staff.

    Redmond said it wants to make the upgrade path easier, since the Windows 7 introduction saw some users complaining that the process was too complicated. To ease the introduction of Windows 8, Microsoft will now offer two options for those looking to make the leap to the new OS: a streamlined and an advanced setup. The new format will dramatically decrease upgrade times, Microsoft promised.

      Interesting read, thanks a lot.

      It's a shame we're not even using Windows 7 yet :(

      Be nice to have a play with the upgrade tools but reading between the lines it sounds like they stiched the old msi's together and removed some screens making a few assumptions.
