Windows Adrian Kingsley-Hughes pens a rant on Windows 8, calling it 'awful': "I'm now ready to sum up my Windows 8 experience with a single word: awful. I could have chosen a number of other words - terrible, horrible, painful and execrable all spring to mind - but it doesn't matter, the sentiment is the same." I've been using Windows 8 Release Preview on both my ZenBook and my regular desktop since its release, and here's my short review: "I like it." Issues a-plenty, but for what is essentially a 1.0 release - not bad. It's a hell of a lot better than other releases which were similar in scope (Mac OS X 10.0, KDE 4.0).

The only part you ever need to see is the start screen. Even then you only need to pin the "show desktop" item and the rest of your apps can be pinned to the taskbar, shortcuts on your desktop, or a custom toolbar folder.
I'm using it fulltime as my home OS now and rarely interact with any metro components at all.
