I am thinking of upgrading to windows 8 tonight. Is this a good idea or should I wait a couple weeks? My friend told me League doesnt run on windows 8 so is that true? Should I upgrade? Is it worth $40?

From what I've heard it's not worth it even if leagues did run on it.

Of course, from what I've heard, people would rather stick with Windows 7 even if Microsoft offered to pay THEM for upgrading.

Most of us learned our lesson when they gave us an upgrade to Vista.

In other words, if you already have Windows 7 then don't bother with 8.

edit: seriously anyone who doesn't realise all the changes are aesthetic is weird. I get the feeling nobody knows what they're looking for and just sees the most obvious thing (a new start menu), the apps are bad but you can download any other program and use it like normal.

im using windows 8 right now. runs league perfectly, steady capped fps at 60.

it's like windows 7 except u have the additional interface on startup but looks mostly the same other than that. sheep are stupid and think that the interface with the icons is all that you can use. you can switch to desktop just like windows 7 and then u wont notice much of a difference.

honestly people can't even say why you SHOULDN'T upgrade other than the fact that you have an ADDITIONAL interface that you can switch off of or remove if wanted. It's probably coded better and more efficient in every way than windows 7.

League runs fine on 8. Definitely worth the upgrade if you were using Vista.
