It's truly reprehensible what Microsoft has done with the Windows 8 upgrade migration path. First, I downloaded and have been using the evaluation version of Windows 8. In the months that I've used it, it has felt clunky. It's very difficult to find
stuff and the user interface is just awful. Aside from the actual usability of the product, the migration is even worse! I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro when I was told that my PC would reboot every two hours if I did not upgrade. Nice! There was not even
an option given to recover windows 7, which was a lot more intuitive than 8. While upgrading, I was asked if I wanted to keep my personal files. (Duh, yes I would. ) When I finally did upgrade and paid the price, I found all of the programs that I had installed
were missing. All must be re-installed. From my perspective, "personal" files include applications that I had installed.
In summary, Microsoft has created and continues to create bonfires of ill will with the procedure that they have implemented for this upgrade. Arrogant, exigent oafs, are the managers who agreed that this was the best way to proceed. Don't do it!
