Did you get Win8? How do you like it?

I just upgraded my laptop to 8 and had to add a shortcut to the desktop to get it to shut down properly. Also had to schedule a task to get it to boot to the desktop.

I dont see Win8 going well.

I'm running windows 8 & Ubuntu on my laptop. I *like* windows 8, the only thing that ticks me off is that for example, I have a firefox "app" in metro. Only when I open it, it opens up the desktop first.

I have windows 8, don't like it.. no sir lol.. on my desktop. Its dual boot with ubuntu 12.10. My netbook runs just 12.10. Of course at work we deal with OSX 8 (so mountain lion)

Someone in this thread said 12.10 had issues with their computer.. mine seems to have flipped the webcam in my netbook. Can't figureout how to fix that. Other than that I really like 12.10

I have windows 7, I have zero plans of upgrading to 8. I went and played with it at the store and wasn't a fan. LOL.

This. My friend has Win8 and from what I've seen of it I hate it.

I hardly ever boot to Windows, when I do its to check for updates. I only upgraded because I got tired of subscribers calling in and not knowing what they are seeing or how to get them to where they need to be to connect to their network or the internet. Getting people online is my job.

Of course adding the shortcut to shut down properly and boot to the desktop task are not something Im going to walk a subscriber through. Another thing is adding a proper start menu to the desktop, I just saw a third party Start menu today. Im going to create my own.

While I am not liking Ubuntu 12.10 and probably wont like Ubuntu 13.4, Ive switched to Linux Mint 14, I am 87 ways of excited over the idea of an Ubuntu powered cell phone. As soon as there is a CDMA ROM for a Galaxy SII I will be breaking my phone again.

Just got done adding the "Start" menu and pinning both it and the shut down button to the taskbar. I still have some tweaking to do with the boot to desktop, but that may be as good as it gets.

Of course most people just want to login and everything to just flat out work, and I like to tweak things.

IE 10 from the Metro menu annoys me. Not having POP email protocal for the default email client also annoys me.

I just got Win8. For basic purposes, I'm getting used to it. I don't do a whole lot of technical stuff on it, just web surfing, photo editing, etc. I like the apps. I find myself staring at the desktop for five minutes trying to figure out how to get to my control panel though.

I think my biggest complaint right now is I have so many different accounts on everything...multiple youtube accounts, multiple gmail accounts, multiple live accounts, my main email is yahoo...everything isn't streamlined for me. Win8 is kind of dependent on that stuff.

Are you staring at the traditional desktop or the new Start, Metro, menu?

So far I have tweaked mine to boot to the desktop, and added a shutdown button.

I have multiple email accounts just not multiple gmail accounts or other multiple accounts.I dont like the default email program in Win8, I still use Thunderbird from Mozilla for emails.

What the 3 big OS players are trying to do, is to get the same experience across all platforms. Ubuntu is the only one doing it right, yet they are way way behind, even though they are way ahead of the game, if that makes any sense.
