    Windows 8 hasn't happened yet... right now MS is holding the "release build" preview.

    The computer that is running Windows 8 is my old Windows XP Franken-Pc. I call it Franken-PC because its components were fried during a blackout and then were then replaced over the last two years as they went bad and failed.. Currently Franken-PC is running on 2 gigs of Ram and things seem alright (Windows 8 is Fast) however I'm certain that the moment I try to install and run CS5 on Franken-PC is the moment it will have a mini stroke, crash and reboot itself. The moment MS tries to force me to buy Windows 8 is the moment Franken PC is downgrading since it makes little sense to buy a new version of windows and put it on a computer which really should be dismantled, and rebuilt using new parts.

    My laptop is currently running Windows 7 (I totaly skipped vista). If it wasn't for all the crap I have on it I would upgrade to windows 8 right away (I'm to lazy to backup/reinstall).

    That said, I am planning on getting a Windows Tablet as soon as Asus builds a duel boot tablet that isn't as larger then my largest monitor.

    Makes perfect sense.

    All I can hope for is this will be better than AD&D's shot at comics...

    I don't now, I like the IDW 4e comics. They feel like an actual d&d game and less than fantasy fiction.

    Right, paying back to all I owe to for when i went into the hospital, reinventing life for myself, and continued repairs to my broken body-there won't be much left.
