@Lemon....you sound a bit like me. I'm running Win7 Pro X64. Have no need to upgrade, but will do so anyway.
People seem to be fixated on this. Read my post above - you do NOT have to use the touch interface if you don't want to.
That latest fixations I've seen on other forums is "Windows8 requires a hotmail account to login in"....which I assume most that have actually taken the time to even look at the setup screens knows this is false.
There's also "MS can disable or remove anything you install".....this is partially true. MS can "disable or remove" software purchased and downloaded from the Windows Store.
My personal favorite....and similar to what you said. Some Anti-Win8 enthusiasts are claiming that you can't use a mouse or keyboard in Win8.
