Installed Windows 8 on my main PC tonight.
So far, Metro is kind of obnoxious and the transitions between it and the traditional desktop are nothing short of jarring.
On the other hand, it’s replaced all the chrome and translucent bits and rounded corners of Windows 7 with a UI that is AWFULLY reminiscent of Windows 2000, which was an excellent OS. It’s kind of odd how fresh it can feel to have straight edges again.
I’ll give it a few days to grow on me.
