After the SPs it was fine for me. My brother is still running my 64 bit ultimate copy I gave him with my old rig.
My main gripe with what I'm seeing so far in Win8 is that none of these links/apps have
to ship with the OS.
When I set each of my daughters up with laptops facebook and a few other sites were bookmarked within seconds
Browsers make it easy to have a metro like start page, icons and all.
The control panel....how hard is it to access? Like 1.5 seconds if I miss the icon
no need for a link on metro for it.
etc etc etc.
I'm still willing to give it a fair shot after we see what the final build looks like, I just don't want metro staring me in the face on every boot up.
