Has anyone tried Windows 8 - the community preview - on HP Pavillion G series?
I ask this because Windows 7 has been a NIGHTMARE - and I'm considering using the community preview. But I don't want to go through all the hassles and the reinstallation time etc etc if I will just be leaping from the frypan into the fire.

If you don't like W7, you're most likely not going to like Windows 8 either. There are a few having problems with their ATI video drivers installing.
It's pretty much the same except that it boots to the new Metro Menu, which is essentially the "Start" button, only it's expanded to work with touch screen computes and tablets.
What problems are you having with W7, maybe it would be better to try and fix those ?
Here is some info to read through.
