I have to thank MS for releasing Windows 8 public beta. The install was easy, and it booted up fine. I worked with it for a while, and came to the conclusion..... The OS stinks for a desktop. Great for a tablet, but my laptop isn't a tablet. I thought to myself...if this is the next windows os then I am going to give the Mac a try. I bought the least expensive mac I could, and must say I am loving it. I have to give a thank you to MS for releasing Win8 so I could experience OS X.
