I think it's OK

I have seen a number of negative reviews about Windows 8 not only by people who purchased it, but also people who get paid to "review". Having just built a system for the first time I was averse to revert to Windows 7 when a new OS was readily available for a reasonable price and depending on where you shop, cheaper the Windows 7.

There is a learning curve, just like most things, and once you get over that you will start to understand how it works and note that it is intuitive and the way forward. I found a few instructional videos on YouTube helpful and Microsoft provide a manual to download, I haven't downloaded it yet.

Two weeks into using it, I can honestly say I have no reason to revert back to Windows 7.

Super easy to install, not so easy to use

The DVD comes in an A5 cardboard envelop with a sticker showing the activation code. it is very easy to install. I won't go through the disadvantages Windows 8 shows compared with Windows 7 as this is well documented. I believed the next release (update, free and automatic for anyone who bought it since launch last year), out in October 2013 if I am right) will solve many of the issues.

The layout and design is ideal for tablets and smart phones, for PC's and Laptops it is no fun. Very glitchy with my install, a pain to get a normal restart without hard booting power button. I thought with the haswell chip this os would compliment each other but I do wish I had got a windows 7 o/s instead.
Windows 8 seriously needs a service pack soon.
