I almost hate saying anything about windows 8 because no mater what your opinion is, someone rips you a new one about it...
but the desktop, everything is awesome, however the UI just feels bland... even with color applied to the window chromes it just feels like it's unfinished, almost like designers never made a UI and this is just a temp placeholder type of feeling.....
Kernel wise, fast as heck, love it
Boot wise, fast as heck, never had windows boot in a whole 2 seconds... UEFI made this almost too fast
Windows desktop features, feel snappier, new progress monitors on file tasks are awesome to see the bandwidth usage and graph it
task manager is defiantly better, but feels like it needs some UI work
the fact I have invisible interaction points drives me nuts though... too much moving the mouse to a place where there is a hover location forgetting about it to have the charm bar pop up or a side bar pop up...etc..etc..
I wish the start button was still there, notice I didn't say start menu, I said button, having an empty space just feels unfinished, and most of the people that I've seen use it feel the same way (normal people, not tech people) it would be nice if in desktop mode you had a charm bar like start screen on the left side with the *option* to go full screen not just forced into full screen mode
having two task switchers is also annoying... one for the "modern" UI and one for desktop... they need combined in some way
