Ok, so today I installed Windows 8 Enterprise on my secondary PC. I've been using the OS for a few hours now, and here's my conclusion as of yet...
Windows 8 is FOR newbies & casual users. It is for users who want the best in customization in windows. It has good eye-candy, and will be easy to learn & understand for new PC users.
Windows 8 is NOT FOR power users, old-school windows users, professionals, geeks & DEFINITELY not for Enterprises (why did they even make an Enterprise version of it?).
Pros over Windows 7:
There are quite a few things to personalize & customize.
A few Metro Apps are good. (Weather, Maps, etc)
Some of the system apps have been revamped. (Task Manager, Windows Firewall, Windows Defender, etc)
Loads up & shuts down noticeably faster than Windows 7
Interface should be better & easier to use on Touchscreens.
Cons over Windows 7:
It's smartphone-like interface is very annoying & hard to get used to. (Start-menu removed, Metro-UI, etc)
It is missing some important softwares which it was supposed to have. (.NFW2/3/3.5, etc)
It has compatibility issues with many Windows 7 apps/games. (Various Antiviruses. MPayne3, LAnoir, etc)
Transparency effects gone, new plastic look refreshing, but doesn't look as good. (No more Aero)
Have to deal with unwanted apps. (Microsoft Marketplace, Xbox Game Store, Xbox Video Player, Xbox Music Player, etc)
6/10 - Skip it, It's not worth it. You're better off with Windows 7. Wait for Windows 9...
