Like it? Love it? Hate it? I just recently picked up a new laptop and my feelings are somewhat mixed. Performance-wise I think it tops Win 7 it's a lot snappier, but I think the UI is often counter intuitive. Many prompts that would work sufficiently opened in a small window now consume an entire screen and I think can affect productivity. I ended up restoring the start menu using Classic Shell after the Metro interface just didn't sit well with me. I want a Windows desktop, not a tablet computer. I'd get an iPad if I wanted that.
