Default Windows 8....I dunno about this one.

Seriously, I just can't get my head around on this one. I can't see how it can be useful for anyone but someone who's got like a media center or for tablets.

I don't think I'd use it for my pain PC. It's too...too much?

I don't think I'd get Windows 8 unless I'd have the option of reverting to a more traditional setting of W7 (but why get it if I want it to look like 7).

Tablets, yes...my PC, no.

I think they said there's a classic desktop option. Those big blocks are just glaringly ugly to me though.

Downloaded and installed W8 developer alpha. Looks sleek, though not much there with it just being a developer edition. We'll see.

Is it usable? It still gives me a headache, it looks like it's meant for a child.

Nah, long ways from being an everyday machine. It's just a developmental copy.
