I have it. It's an awkward OS to use on anything that isn't a tablet. My laptop came with it, and it's difficult to get used to without a touch screen, since it was clearly designed for touch screens.

That being said, I don't hate it. For people who have a hard time getting used to the app screen, there is actually a 'desktop app', which brings up the desktop you're used to looking at on Windows. Things can be downloaded to the desktop, and I use it for Skype and other things that I like better than the app versions of. I've decided to keep mine, since it's easy to access once you've gotten the hang of it, and since there's such a wide range of easily installed apps to choose from.

It is fine on the tablets, and the phone, but not for a pc, I think I may like it if my pc was touch screen, I am sticking to windows 7 though. :)

We have it in our office because it really has a lot more office tools other then that not on our personal laptops . We have been throwing around the idea of getting touch screens then yes will use it on them.

Df's best friend is works tech support for the DOD and he installed a couple months ago. He absolutely hates it. Says its not user friendly and freezes his computer frequently. Also wont read his external or upgraded video card.
