Martin, System builder

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Seems to operate faster. More options for customising, touch features work well. Logs straight into last user on power up if no password for that user which seems sensible to me.
Apps written for Windows 7 work fine.
Can't see why I have read so many complaints, but then some people travell abroad and complain that the food is different.
Bad points:
Can be confusing to learn. Takes a while to work out how to configure and it needs better help because I think some people would be lost at first.
Annoying (for me) that apps that stop have no easy way to be closed. Eg if you run an app which needs to connect on line but there is no internet connection it will complain but there is no way supplied to close it

Manufacturer's Description

Windows 8 is built on the rock-solid foundation of Windows 7, but it’s been improved on all fronts. You can install Windows 8 on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7, and you’ll love how it works on new devices, too. Windows 8 was designed with Windows 7 apps in mind, because you probably have older apps you need to use.

In addition to the new look of the Start Screen, Windows 8 incorporates the desktop that you’re familiar with. Think of the desktop as one of the many apps you can run in Windows 8. In the desktop, you’ll see all the settings, devices and features you used in Windows 7—and you can run the desktop apps you ran in Windows 7, too.

Cloud-connected with your Microsoft account

Sign in to your Windows 8 device with your Microsoft account and you’re immediately connected to the people, files and settings you care about. Your PC comes to life with all the things that make Windows yours, including your Start page, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favourites. You can connect your favourite services to your Microsoft account, too, like Hotmail, Messenger, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and more. And you can immediately get to your photos, docs and other files, whether they’re on SkyDrive, Facebook, Flickr or other services.

It’s all about the apps

In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse great apps, all grouped in easy-to-find categories. We highlight great apps for you and provide quick access to frequently downloaded apps. You can also see how other people have rated apps. You’ll always know what’s interesting, new and popular. You won’t have to worry about buying something you don’t want because you can try before you buy, if the app supports it. If you try an app and like it, you can buy it and continue using the full app with no interruption. You won’t waste time or lose your place.
