Took the plunge and purchased it. Been running it for a couple of days now and am liking it. It runs all my programs and I was able to keep my old desktop and quick launch bar. Still learning it, but it's nowhere as bad as some have said. I even like the new "start menu". Price was good too at $76 with free overnight shipping.
