I'm just not even going to touch Windows 8 and I'm sticking with 7. I tired the developers preview, and I hated it.
By any yardstick, the Developer Preview was a pile of poo.
The Consumer Preview was, by contrast, very fast, stable, and USEABLE.
Release Preview 32-bit has issues, but the 64-bit is fine.
And the RTM is simply superb to use, but LOOKS like a pig without lipstick.
I wonder how many base their dislike of 8 on bad experiences with the DP?
Quite a lot, I'd reckon, going on some of the comments I read.
It took me quite a while to try the CP after rejecting the DP as unuseable,
but now run the 32-bit CP on the other laptop, and the 64-bit Enterprise
RTM on this one.
As for 'Metro", I use Classic-Start on both setups, but keep Metro enabled,
tho I do boot through it to the desktop on start-up.
Both machines have their Windows 7 setups archived as system images in
case I want to go back to 7.
