Anyone using it? What are your thoughts, specifically on a non touch device.

I briefly used it on a demo computer, seemed like a mess.
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

Meh, it's not the clusterfuck that everyone thought it would be but I sure as shit wouldn't intentionally upgrade to it.

We have a few QA machines at work running it(Both touch screen and non-touch). I am not much of a fan yet. From a software development standpoint, it is causing some issues with our product. Personally, I would rather use a Mac than Windows 8 at this point(And I despise Mac's). The one plus it has is the quick bootup.

This alone was worth it to me (I run my computer for mostly gaming and media purposes). I can adapt fairly easily to the new ui. And there are ways to bring back the old start button.

I got a new laptop with this on it. I actually really like it and it's easy to switch between the metro and desktop ui. I just wish it had a touch interface as the metro seems to be designed for that, but at least the touch pad now supports 2 touch input. Wish you could use 3 or 4 finger gestures, but oh well.
