I have it and really do not like it. I installed it as a virtual machine, and the overall UI is just bad.
Only thing I do like is the new IE-app that you launch from metro UI. That was pretty fast, but I still can't figure out how to get Flash or other plugins installed (maybe the reason why it's so fast is because it doesn't support plugins...).
The "desktop" is so lacking. If they had allowed you to have metro UI >>OR<< a full Windows 7 like desktop it wouldn't have been so bad but the way it is right now gives the desktop no real purpose unless you're using older apps that do not integrate with metro. I'm a huge multitasker and at any one time I may have 15+ Windows open, and I feel working under metro UI would be a NIGHTMARE for me. Especially considering I normally have multiple windows up on the screen at once.
In my opinion, they "dumbed" down Windows way too much. I just wish they'd keep this for tablets only (instead of tablets+desktops), and release a "Windows 8 Desktop Edition" that was like Windows 7.
