I installed Windows 8 the other day. Wow! I really like it. I had installed it back when they did the developer preview, but I didn’t like it then. I was hung up on the fact that they removed the “Start” button. I don’t have any issue with that now as I understand the differences between Windows 8 apps and the standard desktop apps.
Everything is smooth and fast in this new version. It’s a refreshing OS to use and it looks very professional.
