I've been using it almost all day so far. There's not any huge changes from the consumer preview but this whole metro interface is really growing on me! Boot times are brilliant!

People are always going to judge it without even testing... We're going to have to wait a little while longer for a bigger selection of apps...

Hmm.

 

I'm not sure I like it.  Perhaps it's fine on a tablet or phone but don't think I like the looks of that on my PC to be honest.

Works a lot better than you'd expect, and changes are still being made.

I think metro is stupid, i think its made for simpletons, its not just microsft doing it, dumbing down the experience, linux is doing it too.

 

I think natty narwhal is stupid too, I think lion is stupid should be called puddy cat.

 

I just hope things like kde keep getting developed.

I usually wait a year before I switch to the new release. It should give them enough time to iron out the bugs(Shame it never worked with Vista :Argh: )


 

Vista was fine after the first service pack.



There are still some aweful bugs in Vista.

The main one that comes to mind involves computers not being able to connect to wifi without reinstalling the OS. I have encountered 3 Vista computers with this problem and I have yet to see the problem in 7 or Ubuntu.

Vista is awful no matter what you do to it.... Good thing I could get Windows 7 free (legally)

Fair enough, never had any problems with it in the times that I used it. It and 7 are for the most part the same OS.
