So, I've been contemplating whether or not to upgrade to the new Windows 8, but I have a few concerns. So I figured that I'd get opinions from you guys. I want this to be a discussion, not just an "It sucks balls," or "It Rocks," posting spree. With that being said, here are a few personal concerns I have.
1)I don't have a touch screen. I know I can still use it with my regular lap top, but it seems as if it was made with touch screens in mind. Is it worth the money to purchase it, if it was basically created for a different kind of interface altogether?
2) Ease of use: I've heard that it has a pretty steep learning curve. Is it really difficult to use, compared to 7? Is it something I could learn to use quickly, without frustration? And long term, will I be banging my head against the table a few months, to a year down the line, when I want to do something simple on my computer?
3)Appearances: Is it pleasant to look at? If I'm going to be looking at it for a long time, I want it to be something that I don't hate looking at.
4)Function: This could and probably does go under ease of use, but I've heard that the start button is hard to find on the screen. I have heard that it's quicker, but has anyone tried it yet, is it indeed faster?
