    How is your Windows 8 experience going so far?

    Myself, I am greatly enjoying it.

    After all the problems, after the refresh, I'm still trying to warm to it but not sure why I spent 14.95 on it twice.

    After using Win 7 with many bugs recently I have upgraded to Win 8 and I am enjoying it.

    Not using it as it does not add anything over Win 7 that I need or want. As to the above poster and Bugs in Win 7 I'd look at your system as having bugs, not the OS.

    I use it occasionally and it's doing fine so far, but I'm not going to throw Win7 overboard anytime soon. Everything I want or need to do I can do just fine from Windows 7, thank you. I have no compelling reason to make the switch and more reasons NOT to.

    Windows 8.1 Professional Update 1 x64, Arch Linux


    I am totally loving it <3
    Upgraded from windows 7, the new windows 8 has all my apps and settings from windows 7. Moreover windows 8 starts in just about 15 seconds whereas windows 7 took whole 3 minutes
    Just one thing I am missing is the aero transparency for window titlebars Hope somebody brings a fix for that.
