I'm new to this forum, so please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place. I'm currently using the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, and while most desktop programs are having no trouble running, I'm finding that a few system tweaks to the interface and some drivers I try to use are conflicting with metro (ie: they're developed to launch at startup and since I can't launch straight to the desktop, the whole system goes whacky). Rather than figure out ways around these problems individually, I kind of want to just reinstall Windows 7 (I have all the disks I need and I have everything I care about backed up). However, I remember that some beta testers of Windows 7 got the final release at a discounted price, and I don't want to forfeit this opportunity if it comes around with Windows 8. Is this somethig that people predict might happen, and if so, will my technique below allow me to get this discount? I'm thinking that as long as I keep the Consumer Preview instillation on my flash drive, I can just reinstall Windows 8 CP and get the discount that way. Will that work, or will support for the discount be revoked if they can detect that someone did this?
