    I honestly like it. The only irritating factor is the redesigned start menu. You can restore the win7-style start menu by installing Start8. Overall, my system felt rejuvenated. My games ran about 10-15 frames higher.

    I dropped back to Win 7 since Win 8 was giving my GPU random crashes. I'd go back if I could find a fix.

    You get the bag and fumble it
    I get the bag and flip it and tumble it
    Straight out the lot, 300 cash
    And the car came with a blunt in it
    Lil mama a thot, and she got ass
    And she gon' fuck up a bag
    Pull up to the spot, livin' too fast
    Droppin' the dope in the stash
    In Italy, got two foreign hoes, they DM me
    Drop the top when it's cold
    But you feel the heat
    Be real with me, just be real with me
    Eat it up like it's a feast
    They say the dope on fleek

I'm also not a personal fan of metro, the whole tablet look is an eye sore, but that's a personal opinion.

    Only thing I know is bad with Win8 is that most older software isn't compatible. You can search online to find a compatible installation and most programs have that.

    Can't you change the compatibility mode on almost all programs?

    I'm currently running Windows 8 Pro 32-bit and I love it. My system feels way smoother and more responsive. I love all the apps.

    Sure, I have not tried yet, but I've only heard that it's not as good as it should be.
    And I could compare it to the jump from XP to vista.. Vista blows.

    And this is pretty much the same thing so far.
    It's windows 7 with a retarded touch-overlay and it makes everything overly complicated.

    And so far it's not too good with games and have pretty bad driver support.

    Conclusion, it's windows 7 for people that want extra flashy stuff that really doesn't have a purpose.
