Re: Windows 8 Release Preview
Installed this immediately when released, fastest smoothest install of any Windows operating system ever.
Really like the UI changes, with the "flatter" look to it.
It's also just amazingly fast, in every respect.
I can't think of anything that I don't like, you get a fully functional desktop system with the added benefit of having access to the app store for any apps which might appeal to you.
Start menu? Rarely ever used the Start button and just as rarely use the Start menu, and the improvements in Windows 8 far outweigh any real or imagined issues with the new Start menu.
Personally I like it for the instant information for such things as weather and the stock market.
Kudos to Microsoft for breaking out of the monotony, and hopefully they will take it even further with Windows 9.
