I just build a new PC actually. Will give it a try since I lost my cd key for my Win7 Pro, eekkk. I don't like IE10 because it is still in preview with unstable things. Also GPU acceleration crashs me PC, had to use software rendering.
I literatly had to use my mom's PC (my retired PC) to do important tasks. Can't risk using less stable PC for my task.
Don't know if Win8 is faster or not, I have awesome Crucial SSD . I think I will get Win8, since I am just way too much a MS fanboy even though I dislike Win8.
BTW, any news on Office 2012? These few days throught office really pains me. But, I don't want to buy 2010 when new one is coming out.
