Tried installing on an old pc, wouldn't go due to lack of virtualization. Ended up installing Arch instead and it runs flawlessly. Installed on a virtual machine on main desktop. Find the UI to be a major step back. The lack of transparency, the blockiness (not very smooth), and the full screen launcher feel like the progress made with vista and 7's ui was scrapped for something easier (which I don't like, nor find easier in som respects).
Install was mindless (which is good). I know without hacks the Start menu won't return, the "Modern UI" start screen, and squared borders will remain, but I like many others I'm sure would prefer a MS Built solution. I think the UI is 100% my reason for staying with 7, and probably will do so until the above is either rectified, or 7 becomes obsolete, at which point I will likely make the full move to linux.
