IMO, it's just about your willingness to try and get used to a new interface but otherwise, there is really nothing wrong with the Windows 8's interface. I use it and prefer it over the previous Windows any time now. It works well on desktop with keyboard/mouse for me. It does need some interface taking to your preference but that's all about it. Many people don't like it but I think only because they are too used to the old interface and don't like to see things changing. Just be patient and use it for some time (which varies depending on the person. Eventually, you will get used to it and become comfortable with it.
