The introduction of Metro brings a learning curve and is definitely intended for the tablet environment. It has no place for the desktop computer. Especially when considering the lack of a start button.
Metro is my only frustration with Windows 8.
The new minimalist look to the desktop and windows has grown on me.
There are obvious ways around the new start environment, some are fortunately free. My current favorite alternative is Classic Start Menu. With it I've disabled the "Active Corners" and skipped the Metro Screen while replacing the missing start menu.
I highly recommend going to a store to demo this OS.
This copy of Windows 8 Pro was installed on a Gateway P-6831FX machine. Specs: 4GB RAM, Intel Core Dual 1.83GHz, GeForce 8800M GTS, 7200rpm hdd.
