Honestly, I do not know what all the fuzz about win8 is.  Or maybe I am using it wrongly.

Granted, the initial metro image may be scary.. but just for a few secs or for the first few times. Then... I just click my application and the regular windows desktop with start button shows up and the app opens.

Am I missing anything? Why are people complaining so much?

Some minor applications do not work with win8; the most important to me was the LG software to connect Outlook to my cell phone and sync calendar/contacts. I had to invest $20.00 for a new piece of software to do that.

Other than that, no problem. More stable, more resilient with crashes...

Am I missing anything here?

And my screen is not touch sensitive, and so I have to use my mouse rather than slide my finger across the screen.

Am I missing anything here?

I am very happy with win8. Truly.

And I use my comp very heavily, multitask a lot.

Am I missing anything here?
