"Poor Attempt to Save a Dying Mobile Platform"0.5 starson by netlord80
Pros: It does boot fast and any serious options are deeply hidden from first time computer users. There are no technical errors or data to confuse the novice.
Cons: 1) The pros listed above for anyone other than a first time user
2) Lack of organization in the Metro interface
3) Very steep learning curve
4) Interface is challenging if not using a touch screen
5) Simple tasks have become cumberbersome
Summary: Overall I feel that this OS is horrible. In my view this is just a poor attempt to save their failing mobile platform. They are trying to be Apple without the style. Even their new blue screen error no longer has any value since it is just a frowny face with some text that says "there was an error, we will reboot your computer". As someone that supports computers, I actually cringed when I saw that.
To me this looks like that kid back in school that tried way too hard to be cool and failed miserably. Unless you want to learn an OS from scratch with limited support and buy all new touch compatible hardware, don't bother with this. Win7 works and is stable. You're better off not switching.
