IMO windows 8 will be another vista it is horrible in usability, navigation, use, fuctions and just about everthing else a user needs in an operating system. I posted it was cool and growing on me months ago, but the more I used it started to become a monster.

I wasted so much time trying to figure out how to move about it was over for me. I deleted it and will never ever in a million years ever for any reason (well maybe a million) think or fart the idea of installing it on any machine excet the 1999 one I own. Then again my 1999 machine has a 500mg harddrive and you need about 3g for the install.

They'll have a switch to flip it back to the old interface, just like they've had for the last 10 years to flip it back to the Win95 interface.

Apparently the Release Preview, scheduled for early June is a much more feature complete version of the OS. I'd probably wait for that before I made a decision based on an early beta release.

Even though Microsoft is pushing for the adoption of the Metro interface it is highly likely there will be some way to revert to a more familiar interface for those who want it.

I predict it will sell like hotcakes.. because in the end, even Vista was profitible and the big problems with vista weren't fatal design issues but abysmal hardware support and cheating OEMS selling crappy computers.
