I got a Surface tablet a couple of weeks ago and I am liking Windows 8... Not rushing to update the desktop though as it's not a touchscreen. I am also loving the Surface...after MS' updates, it runs quite smooth and I love the form factor. Never felt much tempted by the iPad or most of the Android tablets, but this one ticked all the boxes.

As much as in am Android fan boy, I am really pleased by my purchase of the HP Split X2 Windows laptop/tablet.

My view on Windows 8 is that if you're on a touchscreen, it's awesome once you figure it out.

I picked up a cheap WP8 a month and a half back, and have really enjoyed it. The interface is great, unfortunately the apps are still a little lacking in quality and quantity.

Yep. That's my only complaint as well. I am still working on finding the best solution for Facebook and Twitter. Also, I wish they had a forum app like Tapatalk.

Now that I've spent about two months with my (non-touchscreen) Windows 8 computer, I'm in love. It took some time, but now I feel like it's never been easier to navigate.

My wife felt the same way. When I bought her a new laptop, she wanted me to return it that night and find one with Windows 7. Luckily, she was patient and got to know the ins and outs of Windows 8. Now she wouldn't go back, though I do think she'll be appreciative of the 8.1 update coming in October.

I just got my kids a brand new desktop PC with Windows 8 OS. I have to say....i dont see why people are finding it difficult to use. Well....so far, i havent found it so bad.
BUT...i have a question, is there a facilty to make system restore discs, should anything go wrong. Any previous version of windows i have had...upon first boot, has ALWAYS suggested making recovery discs. But it didnt happen with this PC. Im wondering if maybe there is a hidden facility to save you having to make discs?
