New Windows 8--I'm now 3 versions behind

To all

The new version (s) ? of Windows has been released.

That puts me 3 versions behind now--somehow I just haven't seen *new* features I just can't live without--anybody know what I'm missing--I really don't have *touch screen* monitors-----?

Here's a primer on the different flavors--if you haven't been keeping up with what's new:  Win8 vs. Windows RT: What to know before you buy.

I think you also need to make choices about basic home versions, vs Pro vs Ultimate versions as well!

WinXP is still my main OS too, although I'm multi-booting Win7 and Win8.

I'm going to build a new computer next month and I'll make Win8 my main OS. I like it. It feels even "snappier" than Win7.

I still use Windows 98, dual booting with XP using the Gdisk32 aproach, which uses the Microsoft boot loader, while maintaining OS independence.

Since installing D-fend Reloaded to run my old Dos favourites on my laptop however, the 14 year old desktop has been increasingly side lined.

I write this from WXP. Friends have a Dell W7 laptop that I like, tho it sometimes takes  me a while to find my way around when they ask for help with certain things. I heard bad stuff about Vista. W8 *does* have some cool commercials, you must admit.

I'm writing from XP Pro SP3... read that it will be supported for awhile cuz of so many small businesses using it.

Skipped over Vista... don't need the stress.

Playing around with Win7Pro...

Probably will try Win8Pro next.
---------------------
I stuck with 98SE for so long... went right to XP Pro.
