I am excited about Windows 8

I agree with the most recent Coding Horror article: Windows 8 is the most exciting and revolutionary version of Windows since Windows 95.

As a programmer, I am excited all the more. Microsoft has made real strides and innovations in the ease and flexibility of developing for Windows (from .NET to Expression Blend), and developing a Windows Metro app is on my to-do list.

For an IT professional, the list of Windows 8's New and Improved Features is likewise very impressive.

And at the price of $40 to upgrade from as far back as Windows XP (now 11 years old!), it should be a no-brainer.

Will you upgrade? If not, what's holding you back?
