great post.

I've been running the Consumer Preview (and then Release Preview) as my *sole* OS since they were kicked out. People were always surprised and then I simply explained it's Win7 + goodies. I would show them the lack of a start button, and you could see the panic wash over their face.

My advice to everybody I've ever talked to about Windows 8 and whether or not they'll like it, if it will succeed, etc has simply been this:
Use Windows 8 for 40 hours total - not 5 days where you sit down a few hours at a time, but 40 hours total before you make a judgement. Until you've done this, you haven't immersed yourself in the workflow of Desktop <-> RT, how they *can* interact (clipboard, etc) how they can't, what RT apps bring to the table, etc.

So for anybody thinking about getting the RP or RTM and trying it out to see how they like it, keep this in mind before writing a post Smile | :)

Cool | :cool:
