Metro has received so much attention, none of it good, that I've little idea what else Windows 8 even has, never mind whether it's good or not. Aside from Metro, and I realise that's no small thing, is there anything wrong with Win8?

It has small issues like Windows 7 did but for the most part it's just Windows 7 sans Aero. It has some intangible improvements that people reference but don't really become apparent even under benchmarks or etc. Windows 8 doesn't have much else in the way of user facing features to point to beyond Metro. For better or worse, it's the big bullet point on the box and it hasn't exactly been a popular feature. So there isn't really much else to hate other than Metro unless you really liked Aero but that's not exactly a ringing endorsement either, the prices have come way up from launch.

At $15-30 its whatever who cares, I'll disable Metro and its a good price. At $100+ people will scrutinize it a lot more.
