A few days ago I installed the Windows 8 Release Preview on a brand new SSD. I'm seriously unimpressed...... I don't use ANYTHING that is on that Metro desktop, except Internet Explorer, so it all just seems a waste of time to me.
Everything is difficult to get to, and doesn't make sense. I don't claim to be the most tech savvy person, but i'm not an idiot, even so I had to google how to shut the damn computer down!! So, I can't see me using this at all, and I am seriously toying with the idea of buying a Mac. Since I use an iphone and don't like Android phones maybe that is the sensible thing to do, as it seems Microsoft are trying to get PC users to consolidate their computers, tablets and phones, which I'm not going to do as I love my iphone.
So, maybe it's a case of "choose your side" now, and go with what you are comfortable with. I'll never be comfortable with Windows 8 or Android phones so maybe the Mac route is going to be best for me.
My new SSD is currently empty, awaiting a clean install of Windows 7, which I will run until I decide whether to switch platforms..........
