I think Win 8 is an acquired taste. I put it on my Desktop, hated it, and then it suddenly it just did not start one day, all the motions and then black screen.
I had a he!! of a time getting anywhere to fix it
I now have purchased a touch screen, and reinstalled, I am either brave or stupid!
I think once I master it, I will like it ( I hope) I am old school and have used every operating system since original Windows. But as as a gal of 56,and a 15 yr chronic pain sufferer ( so not nearly as sharp as I used to be) I do find it challenging. I freely admit it. I am a self taught person, who unfortunately never opens a book.
This time I bought what looks like the simplest book to understand to teach me, So, wish me well, If I get that baby goin and like it, I will SING it's praises. I have way too much time on my hands and compute a LOT! So I am excited to play with it. I have never had to buy a book to learn an operating system before, even MACS.
Just my 2 cents, Meno~

WIndows 8 boots faster (marginally) than WIndows 7 on the same hardware, but I have found that upgrading from WIndows XP to 8 worked better than previous versions of windows. I have done several upgrades on some older hardware with no issues so far. Windows 8 is however an acquired taste. When 8.1 comes out you will have the ability to boot directly to the desktop and avoid the netro UI which is good but there will still be no classic start button. Additionally, make sure that you turn off live tiles that you wont be using as they will be sucking your bandwidth.
