Change for the sake of change isn't always a good thing.
It isn't change for the sake of change. It's change for the sake of creating an interface that spans usability between mouse-driven and touch-driven devices.

Again, not saying everyone has to like it. Just saying that people seem to be implying that there is a failing of usability, when virtually all of the use cases from Windows 7 are highly similar with Windows 8.

With Windows 7, you called up the start menu by clicking in the lower left corner, or by hitting the windows key. Both of those still apply. In Windows 8, you can also use the Charms menu, but you don't have to.

With Windows 7, to run the calc app, you could click start, click run, and type calc, and hit enter. Or you could hit start and just begin typing calc, and hit enter. Or you could press Windows-R, type calc, and hit enter. Or you could click on the application's icon in the start menu. All of these things still apply. In Windows 8, you can also search using the charms menu, but you don't have to.

I purchased my Windows 8 Pro and Media Upgrade in January. I purchased a new Dell XPS on the Presidents Day Sale and received it Wednesday. Since this had Windows 8 only, I thought I'd try to use the Windows 8 Pro and Media Upgrade keys to try and upgrade my current system. I entered the WIndows 8 Pro and I was surprised that it installed the program. After that, it asked me to activate Windows 8 but I did not have the activation key. This was last night. I woke up today and turned on my pc and it went straight to the Activate Windows screen (this is also available on the activation screen on the computer). I clicked on a link to activate by phone. It gave me a sequence of numbers that I entered. Once successfully entered, it gave me back a code which then activated Windows 8 Pro.

In short, I was able to purchase 1 copy of Windows 8 Pro and install it on 2 computers. The same goes for Media Center Pack. YMMV but it sure worked for me.woot

Purchased Win8 Pro in January. The computer it was purchased for was returned. A few days ago I received a new computer. I used the same activation code, that was emailed to me from Microsoft, to install Windows 8 Pro on the new computer which was purchased in January. Now, we all know that 1 key can be used per computer. So when I used this one, I was surprised that it installed Windows 8 pro on another computer. At the end, it asks to activate windows. Since WIndows 8 has the product key injected into the system (no label on the tower like older models), there's no way to get it to activate windows. What I then did was click a button on the Activate Windows page which gave me a phone number and a long code to enter. Once those numbers were entered, it gave me another code that I entered into the blank fields, located on that same page, which then activated my copy of Windows 8 Pro on my computer.

Are there any pitfalls associated with buying licenses to gift to friends and family (aside from them possibly not liking Windows 8, of course Big Grin) I assume it's okay if they're not activated by 2/28.

The license key does not expire, only the coupon does. Install when ever you want, even on a different machine.
