Are people migrating to 8 or do most still prefer MX? Which do you think is a better product?

8 is better but not by much. It does have improved support for style sheets but once again it omits some stuff that they could easily have built in. For example a site wide spell check.

The css support is a bit better as is support for server side scripts

It seems they have removed some of the functionality [webmasterworld.com] though :(

I am going to have to do a system restore to an older version and reinstalled DWMX till I find a fix for that problem.

Could you be more specific about how the functionality has been impaired? Obviously it's pretty serious if want to revert to MX.
