I would agree, and I haven't used it yet.
On a tablet PC it is perfect but on a desktop IT SUCKS MONKEY BALLS
I actually work on my computer (I must be a nutcase), and the UI shows that it will be a pain to use a computer running Windows 8 for anything other than social networking and watching movies. The "easy-to-use" interface in modern operating systems (anything newer than Windows XP) is too difficult to use for anything resembling work.
The current design (programs don't actually close and the UI looks like a smartphone instead of a computer) is exactly what people want.
Well I don't know if it sucks monkey balls, but I must say I'm underwhelmed
at this point. Get rid of the Metro UI for desktops & it's much the same as Windows 7 with a smartphone interface and a few ribbons here and there, new task manager...and little else I've noticed.
A little snappier perhaps--I'm running it in a VM so it's hard to tell how much. As it is, Win 8 is like 2 different OSes bolted clumsily together
but of course this is a pre-beta fercryinoutloud.
....The Metro UI absolutely sucks for any sort of computer other than a tablet/phone
