I'm loving Win8 with my new system. 10 second boot time and even shutting down is almost like turning off a light switch. The resourse management is reasly good and all my games seem to perform really well. I was surprised that all my drivers worked when they did. IMO, this is the best Win OS yet. And who really cares about the tiles? I just go directly to the desk top app when the system launches. I really don't know what all the fuss is about. The Windows key finally makes sense now.
