Re: I agree, it wasn't for me on my Desktop PC

All programs that worked with Win7 seem to have no problems with Win8. However, I found it offers very little for desktop users over Win7 - quite a number of annoying additions mean that, whilst it seems to run slightly faster, the extra key strokes required cancel the gain. I reverted back to Win7 - might give it another look after service pack 1 is issued, which hopefully will eliminate some of the annoyances.

I agree. Tried it on a backup system that I have (Desktop) to see if I would like it. Nope. Works well on my Lenovo 220 Tablet but not for me on the desktop.

Still interested in what others here have to say about it though.

I'll also agree. Having used Windows 8 for a month, I love Windows 8 and CS6 on my tablet. But there is no way I would even try to use W8 on a non-touch screen desktop. I will definitely not be upgrading my desktop to Windows 8.
