Been using Windows 8 final build for a while now and honestly It is everything that I thought it was. They basically fragmented the user experience and "mixed" things up for the worse. The Metro Interface is barely functional as a whole, since you need to use the Desktop for almost everything serious you do on a PC/Laptop. What you get is a constant back and forth of Metroish lackluster functionality and the true Desktop which is just Windows 7. I can honestly imho this OS will not be well received. Now, there are some improvements under the hood, this thing is even faster than Windows 7 and the boot time and wake up time from sleep mode is just incredible, and I'm using a 5400rpm hard drive on my laptop. The Metro interface is one of the most innovative things I've seen done for TABLETS! This is where the OS should stay and it shows everything you use it on Windows 8, whoever thought of mixing these things up should get fired from Microsoft. Hell, they should hire me, I can test all their products and tell them what the consumer really wants. I really wish that Steve Ballmer would step aside, Microsoft needs a new image and a more innovative product, but Windows 8 isn't the answer, it should have stayed on the chalkboard.
