Most of the people I know or have talked to are more than willing. The trouble that seems to stop them as I mentioned above they can't afford to buy a newer machine or just plain don't have the money to go out and buy windows 8 to install. These are mostly older people that have disabilities and live off a fixed income. I find talking with people face to face is more reliable than what you see on the internet. By the way my friend that runs a computer shop has gone to windows 8 both in his shop and all three of his computers at home. He has nothing but good to say about the OS.
