iPad versus Windows 7

So my first iPad app is about to hit the App Store and at the exact same time the hard-drive on my Windows 7 PC, I get a Windows 8 developer DVD in the mail, and Apple introduces the most amazing iMac ever. Is this a sign? Is it time to choose to go all in on Apple or should I just save up for a SSD?

iPad Updates

Decided to work on update to my iPad App (Brigands and Barbarians HD) before working on any other apps

Win 8

Windows 8 seems to constantly be forcing you out of desktop mode, also managing application in Metro mode is a bit hard to get used to as well. Still going to give making apps for it a go.

Meanwhile my iPad App is done, Brigands and Barbarians HD and I have done a number of updates, check the forums here for promo codes.

Now do I make a new iPad app or Win 8???

I'm not very impressed with windows 8 either to be honest I just don't like the tiles but I'm happy to keep with Win 7. It's a shame they did that as the surface pro looked really promising but I couldn't live with that GUI.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

I don't like Windows 8 either. Microsoft is trying to make it too much like a smartphones layout and its confusing. I'll be staying with Windows 7 for a while.
