Not a massive fan, but have only played with it for a few hours, so maybe not the best judge? As sevenspark mentioned, it’s just not that intuitive, I pick things up quite quickly, but still found it a bit of a pain. Give me OSX any time of the day ;)

I’ve opened a similar thread here a few months ago since I wasn’t sure if Win8 will be good enough for my use. But now I’m using it for almost 2 months and I’m happy with it. All my software is working fine, launching fast and running stable. I’m using the Adobe Suite, Filezilla, various Browsers and other tools. I even like the new Office 365 which looks simply great.

On the other side there are a few minor things I dislike…When I open a Photo it gets open in an Microsoft Image Viewer – and I still don’t know how to navigate it without always closing it with Alt + F4. The same for PDF’s – but I’m still fine with that. Once a day I will find it out for sure :D

Personally, it took me a couple of weeks to adjust, but I really love it now!

when you install adobe reader and you want to open a pdf file windows will inform you that there are additional software you can use to open that file. You can then chose the default application to open that file type.

At least is how it works on my setup. Also there is the old way of right click and chose the default application to open the file with.

Opening photos with the metro app is annoying but you can still use the previous desktop photo viewer

I didn’t like it so after 10 years on PC’s switched back to Mac for my main workstation. Fortunately the new Mac OSX is brilliant so I doubt I’ll be buying any new Windows OS, and we’ve kept Win7 on our Windows machines.
