Re: The Windows 8 thread.
I updated from a very lean Vista install to Win 8, and it did not transfer all my programs. So beware. But really, the only apps I had on it were Office 2007, and that was easy to reinstall. It did keep the cpu-z hw monitor program oddly enough, but that program has actually crashed a couple of times.
