Haven't used it yet, but based on what Aaronjer and Rockbomb have said, it's probably bad.

Win 8 sucks. It seems like a win 7 clone with more "features" (aka annoying 'apps' that are meant to make your life miserable). But after you get that, you realize it's just a win 7 clone with apps.

I've been using Win 8 for a while now, and I'm just not getting used to it. I didn't realize how much I liked Win 7 until I switched to 8. It's nothing deal breaking, it's just annoying.

I swear the start menu search finds less of what I'm looking for now. It's unhelpfully categorized or something. With Win 7 it seemed like it just knew what I meant more often.

The whole metro experience just feels like a web page with animated ads everywhere. It's unpleasant.

I liked Win 7 because it got out of the way. I didn't really think about it or notice it much. It seems like Win 8 is always trying to get my attention yelling "HEY LOOK AT ME!!"

Also Win 8 has crashed on me more than a few times, which doesn't help.

It does have some weird problems which I assume will go away after Microsoft figures it out.

So far some bugs that I have noticed:

It changes timezones randomly. Random as in sometimes when I start up my computer it thinks it's in the US as is runnning about 7 hours wrong.

It forgets what some programs were doing just before. For an example, when you open Steam it will target your last played game. That's not always the case and it will sometimes target The Walking Dead.
This problem also exists with Chrome, but that everytime that I run Chrome it has forgotten everything. The window it opens is not located and not the size I've chosen. Firefox works fine, so I've gone back to it for the moment.

I can't watch the videos on Steam. Steam tells me I need to install the "other browser" version of flash player which doesn't actually seem to install. This might be a problem on Adobe's side though.

Trying to watch youtube videos at 720p or 1080p freezes the video and firefox but the sound is fine.
Today's post brought to you by the letter: "heck".

My points value is a hilarious example of numerical humor.
