I am one of these people who are consummate early adopters. I just love trying out new things. With Windows 8, I didn’t absolutely hate it, but it did take me some time to adjust to it. It’s a completely different user experience. However, after I used it for a couple of days, it’s really nice. In the interest of full disclosure, I do spend a lot of my time in the Windows 7 mode - most of the apps that I use only run in Windows 7 mode, but I do like the new UX.
