I have had a chance to use Windows 8 twice for a few minutes and really like the interface. If you have the Windows Phone 7 you'll be right at home. It doesn't differ much from that. I think many people have already come to the conclusion that Windows 8 sucks before they even use it because of the new interface. I'm glad Microsoft is trying to change it up. Apple rarely changes anything (take the new iPhone 5 for example). It's a fresh new design that may take some getting used to, but I love it. My only concern is that when I upgrade I'll lose all my files on my laptop.
