Anybody try it? It seems to be so tablet centric. How desktop friendly is it??
I still have Vista on my desktop...Not really concerned with Windows 8.
I have Vista still because, with my hardware, I don't have issues like all my memory (12GBs) being used by the OS, and until I deem it necessary to re-load the OS, don't intend to upgrade to Win 7.
I have it installed in a Virtual Machine and on a decent system it is way faster than Vista or Win7. Of course I haven't gotten too deep into it yet. Not having a Start menu is kind of annoying at first until you realize you can pretty much add something similar in as a custom toolbar very easily. The Metro apps are both interesting and annoying. I mean do you want to login to Xbox Live to open a video/music stored locally on your hard drive? I would prefer a menu the first time you try and open media asking if you want to use the Metro Music & Video software, use Windows Media Center or use Windows Media Player as the default. And i don't like how they hide the internet options in the metro version of IE 10 so you can't turn stuff off like 3rd party cookies, or clearing browser history as you close the browser.
Welcome to Microsoft always tracking you even more so than now.
