It's funny MS has spent millions making the desktop look and act like it does, now they see Apple making a fortune and decided everything they taught us since 95 was BS. I hope they realize their core is the desktop and even though it is getting smaller it will never go away...

On the desktop it is BS, you have entry level laptops with I3's and 4 gigs of ram, you do NOT need "smaller apps", the entry level pcs are more powerful and less expensive than ever before. The market is shifting, yes, the people who don't want desktops are just jumping around from laptops to netbooks to tablets. They just have more choices than they ever had before, it doesn't mean they still don't have a desktop, hardware lasts longer, desktops don't NEED to be replaced as often as they once did.
It's not BS. But the times are changing, and what Microsoft has with Windows 7 isn't sustainable. The consumer's interests have changed. Big, bulky apps that Windows caters to are still nice to have, but the consumer is interested in smaller apps. These Metro apps, while light, are going to start filling in the holes in the Windows OS quite nicely, and you're never going to have a desktop equivalent to many of these, so avoiding them is futile. Hell the Metro Skype app replaced the desktop one for me, I'm currently running it docked to the left side of my monitor. I also have MetroTwit, and Calendar running in the background. After I reply here I'm going to be opening OneNote MX to update some notes I have.
People may laugh, but Windows 8 is a big deal, and this is pretty much why.

I think adding ads to their card games was the final straw, a 30 second ad to play a game that was free in the last version? No Thanks.
Wasn't the 30-second ads only on the Daily Challenges? The game itself (if you select not to do the Daily Challenges and just stick with the game) is ad-free just like on previous Windows releases. Just saying, I have nothing against your vote since it's your own personal experience.

Installed fine. Everything seems to work out of the box (did a clean install). It's quicker than 7.
For those who are not liking it. Leave it on a few days. Once you get used to it, you may change your mind.
