"A disaster for the average computer user"1.0 starson by wtfgolfing
Pros: Some benefits to the tiled Metro, lots of apps with a click
Cons: Extremely confusing and non-intuitive. Those that use it constantly will probably figure it out, but those that don't will be constantly relearning. A huge step down from Windows 7.
Summary: Definitely don't upgrade from Windows 7 and strongly recommend against purchasing a computer with Windows 8 unless you plan to learn a completely new system and use it enough to stay familiar with it. Going to a Mac would be much easier.It is July 2013, we've had 7 months to get used to our laptop with Windows 8. Usually use or Windows 7 desktop unless on the road, that's when we are stuck with this disaster. Some of the links on the metro screen are interesting but not major. But trying to do some of the routine things done with Windows 7 are a nightmare, usually end up googling to try to figure it out. I thought Vista was bad but it is small potatoes compared to this disaster. What really ticks me off is Windows 7 was so good, but of course that isn't beneficial to Microsoft so they force change on us. I am not taking a chance on Microsoft again, next purchase is an Apple.
