Having access to MSDN, I've had access to the full RTM version for about a month now, and I'd used the previews before that. And I've got to say, like many people, I've got mixed opinions.

I think it will work great on tablets. The tiles and new "metro" (even if it's not called that any more) interface is suited to touch a lot more than a mouse. Having used it on a conventional PC however, I've got to say it's pretty rubbish. It's really hard to move along the metro interface with a mouse, and with now way of disabling it (Microsoft secretly removed the ability to do that) I hate it. Let's just say I'll be using a LOT more keyboard short cuts now.

However, if you took away the metro interface, I like it. It is slightly faster than Windows 7 when I tested it, and some of the new features are good to.
