I wouldn’t upgrade to Windows 8

I did and I rue the day.  Two main issues: there aren’t drivers for some of my existing devices which ran full functionality in Win 7, and despite paying twelve dollars more for the bonus software pack to get the Windows 8 Windows Media Player in order to play my old movie dvds on my laptop, it doesn’t work quite right.  My cursor is invisible when I run this app which makes selecting and running the dvd player controls a tad awkward.  I like the Win 8 style and apps in other ways but these two shortcomings are bad.   I would wait and see if drivers get written for your specific devices before making the leap.
