So far I don't like it. I will reserve my final opinion when the beta version is available. I really don't need a portable interface on a desktop that is not a touch screen. The conventional interface seems to be more of an add-on that really does not add any value to what is available in Windows 7. My son has a Mac Pro and the interface is a much more elegant. If Microsoft does not polish up the interface in Windows 8, I doubt I will buy it. Also if Microsoft does not develop a better interface by windows 9 I may have to consider a Mac.

Avira and Avast AV report "compatibility issues". You can "install" and run Avira but the scan is not recorded in log and update is not reported, so I'll leave Windows Defender and Windows Firewall in place for the time being. Installed Open Office and it seems to play nice w/Win 8. I like the interface so far-bit of a learning curve to find things, but that is what we try things and give feedback. Improvements will come with beta/rc/rtm.

Hi Paulgo,

Yes. I think many will feel the same as you do.

The interface is very irritating.

However, I am sure that later you will be able to choose which you use - without intereference from the other.

There are signs of some very interesting developments in the o/s proper - some annoying bits too - particularly with regards to pe.

I am hoping they will be cleaned up - and I think we may ,in the end, be in for something very special.


If that is the case - and MS comes out with an excellent product - then the marketing is where they may fall down.

They don't seem to understand what marketing is.

Hello All,
The other day I decided to download and install the windows 8 dev. version, I partitioned my hard drive like it's recommended to do and installed it there. I must say..it's a LOT different than windows 7. As I'm still trying to learn about it, I haven't formed any kind of opinion on it yet. There is somewhat of a user guide on the download site, but it really doesn't go into very much detail.

Hi Shawn,
Thanks SO much for such a quick reply..I was a member in here before when it had a different name, now it seems even BETTER !! I'll take your advice and check out the other site, thanks. This morning my biggest issue is trying to get the windows xp service pack 3 installed on my older desktop that has windows xp professional sp 2 already installed on it. It starts to install the service pack correctly, but then I receive a 'internal error' notice, and informed the update couldn't be installed. Thank goodness for google !!
David
