Re: Windows 8 Consumer Preview
Metro UI was a PITA at first, but once you understand it, it's actually a lot better. I can access my stocks, weather, email, and documents way faster. I just wish they had some sort of metro news app.
I also like how you can dock apps at the right third of the screen. I can browse the web and get updates to my email/stocks/whatever at the same time.
Task manager is way better. File copy is way better. If Microsoft can get companies to build apps that are Metro UI compatible this could be a great OS for them. I'm not going to switch over until I get full driver support (there are a few motherboard components that don't have Windows8 drivers), but I really like what I see.
