Ok, I installed it on a virtual box..... I messed around for two hours on it, I am just confused, and I have a technical background..
There were a couple things I liked.
the live tiles is a good idea, I like how it asked me if I had a Microsoft account (ie hotmail), reminds me of google. But that connects your mail live tile and also sets your default password.
I did like the internet explorer app, not the desktop version, but the app itself..
With Windows 8 it seems as if Start becomes your new desktop (as in you spend most of your time there )
Maybe with a few more hours I will get it haha
