It's a travesty. Microsoft should fire whoever forgot that things work in a love hate swing cycle, we're all sick of the tablet style now and wanted to go back to a nice basic OS. They should've just been patient.
I'm sure once everyone is used to it it'll be fine, but I see no reason to upgrade to it from Windows 7 until I build a new computer in a few years time, and in all honesty I'm most likely going to use Linux.
window 8?? Like or hate ? Watch

They tried to create a seamless experience over desktop/laptop/tablet/phone. And what they ended up with was one disjointed mess. Metro and the original desktop just do not work together and some of the inbuilt apps are terrible.
I'd stick with Windows 7 until Microsoft learn how to create a seamless OS.

I'm going to be the antagonist here and say I really like Windows 8.
It's arguably faster, a much more 'cleaner' layout which you will get used to. Simple things like the Control Panel can be accessed quickly, by swiping the trackpad (on a laptop) from the right to the left and selecting Control Panel.
I like the lock screen and the fact it boots up a lot quicker. You can easily change which programs start-up on boot.
To be honest, I don't use the Apps at all and hardly ever use the winkey to open programs. My Apps actually don't work, I only noticed a few days ago because I've never ever used them since the first week I got the laptop (Back in Jan 13)

I preferred Windows XP Home Edition.
