I have been using it for a month or so and found it quite a learning curve and it's not too bad.The only thing I have noticed other than the clunky box interface is that so many of the great programs I used on Windows XP won't run on Windoze-8,nor will some of my hardware (printers,external hard drives etc).If you are prepared for this and don't mind the trade off,fine business and it's rather intuitive.

Pros
  • Ease of use
  • Nice interface on either home screen
Cons
  • interface with legacy hardware/software
  • more of the old style Windows "feel"
