Don't get it why you guys are so negative, you really should use it for more than five minutes before making up your minds. I hated it too at first, but when I got used to it, it turned out to be much faster than Windows 7 ever was. This includes changing settings etc. The only thing that really bothers me is the inclusion of the WP7 browser inside of metro. Why do I need two browsers when one of them is clearly a thousand times better? It is really irritating when it opens up instead of your default browser. Other than that I really have no complaints.
One really benefits from learning the basic key commands in Windows 8, as it improves efficiancy tenfold. Was planning on getting an iPad 3, but after seeing just how great Windows 8 is, I might just wait for a proper tablet.
