I almost upgraded to Windows 8 few months ago. But one day I went to the store to try it out and didn't care for it. It probably wouldn't take long to get a feel of the new look. But either way, people will have to upgrade and get use of it.

Give me a traditional desktop/laptop OS and mouse for work please. The tablet (or in my case iPad) that's for fooling around.

Win 8 is a great desktop OS. I run Windows 8 on 4 of my personal machines, and only one is a tablet. Two are old laptops upgraded to Windows 8, one is a monster desktop with 8 cores and 96GB of RAM. When in desktop mode, the only thing I notice is it's got improvements over Windows 7 and searching for something is much easier.

HOLY COW! What do you do with that monster? 4K video editing? Or Halo?

Well, actually much more boring that that, just software development. I had the opportunity to get a server class machine for cheap so I decided it couldn't hurt.
