Love it? Hate it? Let's hear your thought. I find it really interesting that most of my hardcore pc player friends hate windows 8.
Well at work I use Windows 7 at home I have a Mac. I really enjoy both to be honest, neither really out perform each other except for the fact that my work computer is far more powerful than my wee little laptop.
I was wondering how Windows 8 was fairing. I was hearing that it wasn't so good too.
I am using it now on my work desktop and am neutral to mildly positive about it. Some things are better, such as peripheral equipment and a very smooth and fast interface compared to Win 7 on the same hardware. I just upgraded with no hardware changes. Installation etc. was also easy. I had the consumer preview installed on my convertible labtop/tablet. I loved it on that and it really rocked. the metro interface is perfect for the fingers. But there are some third party hardware drivers missing that I needed so I went back to seven on that a little unwillingly. I am looking forward to a convertible or tablet with 8. If you are thinking of upgrading, definitely go with the tablet/convertible form factor. It is nearly identical to 7 if you are using it on an old-fashioned desktop.
