Weekly Poll: How Quickly Do You Upgrade to a New Version of an OS?

Early adopters make or break a platform since they tend to be very vocal about their likes or dislikes. I’m one of those pesky early adopters — I like to be on the cutting edge, specially if it’s prone to make my productivity go bye-bye.

I installed the consumer preview of Windows 8 within the first week and I waited so long only because my spare machine was out of commission. Obviously, not everyone get on board a new platform so quickly.

Today, I’d like to know how long you usually wait before jumping to a new version. A week, a few months, a year maybe? I personally know people who wait till the first service pack, just to be sure. What usually stops you from upgrading and how soon do you plan to switch to Windows 8?

So vote away and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!
