For those of you who have an MSDN subscription, Windows 8 (the RTM build) is now available.  Have you tried it? If so, what’s the verdict?

I’ll have my thoughts later this week.

let the raving begin ...

Personally ... I can't see any reason to upgrade from W7, tried out Metro and it's something I can do without. Might miss some good tech that is going into W8, but W7 does its job and I am more than happy with it.

I use my computer (and phone) as a tool, not a social accessory ...

I do not have MSDN as yet so I'm going to have to wait a while, but I'll be keeping a keen eye on this thread to keep abreast of what the RTM has to offer.

Hopefully it's good rather than bad news.

W8 reminds me of ME and we all know what that was like.

Downloading it now and I may check it out when I get time, but I do not hold any hope for it unless I can get it to look and function exactly like Windows 7.

Did you say classy?

It's not the UI or the tech, it's the Microsoft Store that will be the biggest issue.

For me, that was some classy crap. And it was just my true opinion of Windows 8.

 

Oh well, they say shit happens. I guess not on this thread.

W8 H8.

I like your visually acute political commentary.

Absolutely. An essential part of the Apple ecosystem is the App Store.

The same is true for MS... and they aren't making a comfy environment for the devs.

I installed win8 RTM Win

I had been playing with the beta the RTM is about the same. I like the OS. The new start screen is easy to customize and

 contrary to what everyone says you only see the start screen when you open a program.

Other than that it's like being on windows 7. all the software I use most is pined to the taskbar.

 So I hardly see the start screen. All in all I like it

I only have it running in a VM, but I'm just getting used to Metro for now.
