Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

When I upgraded there was a lot of updates to some of the Metro Apps.

Some I uninstalled because they were totally useless to me. I been using Metro Skype and tbh I quite like how I can set it to sit on the sidelines and not interfere with the "desktop".

The Video Player is good, but I haven't tried it with anything except MP4 files and movies that have subtitles.

There are a few nice free apps in the store, Google Maps works quite nicely, and the BBC News App.

There is a "Metro Commander" which I have installed but haven't tried out yet.
