We can't have an OS Discussion Forum without the obligatory controversial discussions.

To make things a little easier to sift through, start your posts with Dislike, Indifferent, Like or Love followed by your reasons for your opinion.

Which camp do you fall in when it comes to Windows 8?

Like- I guess I'm just really neutral on it I don't hate it when I've seen it on other peoples computers but I've yet to upgrade myself because Windows 7 is just fine.

I added an "Indifferent" category as I think I fall in that one.

I've tried it on my sisters laptop, and in the store today, and it feels like it might be fitting for a touchscreen laptop as a mix of productivity and consumption, but not a full on desktop machine (but i really shouldn't make that assumption without trying it fully).

It was quite amusing watching a guy on the train last week with the laptop at his chest like a tablet pressing the screen though :rolleyes:

Love, as outlined in this post. However, I won't disagree it has flaws, as I point out here and here. It's definitely more suited to a touch device, but using it without touch won't kill you.
