IMO Windows 8 is crap for the desktop. I'll pass.
For now Windows 8 is all good for mobile devices (Even with the low app support) but not for pc at all...and for development purpose win-7 is very fine no need to update
I'm amazed this thread is still kicking. This post on page 1 summed it up quite nicely:
Win 8 A Great Change
This is for all of those who rubbish Windows 8, and like a similar article personally I found it very easy to use. like all OS platforms when they first arrive they feel a little strange and take getting used too. Like most personally I used the preview version first to get used to the new set up, then on launch day I bought my upgrade downloaded and now it is in full swing and running well, although I do get loss of wallpaper at times for no reason. however putting this behind all other components work very well, are fast, and very responsive. admittedly I have a hybrid drive from Seagate installed which really speed things up, however before this I had the standard HDD and it too was very fast compared to Win 7.
There are a few minor things to sort out in the new OS and Microsoft seems to be addressing these with updates as they did before with previous OSs. Then why all this negative rubbish when all of you should sit down and learn and all will be fine and generally you will be rewarded with a very pleasing experience.
i took time to use it etc, the interface is whats getting in the way, rest of it is fine.
I tried the RC of it and set up the usual stuff to be able to use it properly but I just wasn't bothered learning how to use it over Windows 7 as I know it's aimed at touch screens. Windows 7 is great for me. I'm sure Windows 8 is great on touch screen devices but on a PC I just found it to be counter-intuitive.
counter productive at that. The performance gains dont overshadow the inefficiency of the UI at all. there is nothing to gain in gaming either
