My first reaction was "Ok... looks a bit... crap?" but looking at it a few times I actually quite like it now. It's clean and simple. Prefer it to the old one.

CarRamrod Further decline of the Windows OS? Windows 7 was really well done, and in my opinion one of the best OS's I've used.

Yeah but with how abysmal Vista was they may be hurting themselves even more. I feel the sales of 8 will be nothing short of terrible due to businesses and gamers, I for one will be skipping it.

With the abysmal vista? are you just skipping over Windows 7 ? Sales of 8 will be terrible due to businesses and gamers? What makes you think that?

If anything the way to take from this was that Vista was terrible, yes, but they hastened the release of Windows 7 which is a fantastic operating system in my opinion. I'm hoping they've learnt their lesson from the horrific Vista release and will have a decent Windows 8 release.

I didn't include 7 in my statement because it isn't abysmal and is pretty decent/good. Businesses make up a huge part of Microsoft's client base. They will not want this Metro garbage as it doesn't seem geared to the workplace at all. Game developers are already saying their distaste towards the new OS and a couple have said they may look into Linux because of it. This makes it sound bad for gamers when you read this. I know I won't be getting Windows 8 as it's very apparent Microsoft is forgetting their roots and is trying too hard to be Apple, looking for an OS that runs on everything, which isn't the functionally smart thing to do.

As a Software Engineer working for a media touch screen entertainment company we were going to be working with Windows 8. Many developers I've spoken with have, although not exactly excitedly, stated that they will be moving to Windows 8's Metro style. I'm looking forward to developing with it to be honest.

Well yeah, it makes sense for your company. Were the other developers you've spoken too in the same side of the industry(touch screen ent.)? Also, I'm talking the typical business, more-or-less, and not saying every single business will hate it as you are taking it too literally. The typical business that doesn't focus primarily on developing for touch screen entertainment will not benefit from the new design from what I've read.
