I will wait to have a look when the features it is going to have gets locked in and things are not going to change.
I will stick it on a virtual machine just to have a look, but to be honest, I have got Windows 8.1 as i want it, with a nice start menu. i really do not see the need to change.
If MS offer it free as a update, I will think about it, but I am certainly not buying another version of windows. i only use windows these days for video editing and a few games.
Linux is what I used mainly these days.
