I really like Windows 8. It has made me more productive at work, and is more intuitive to use that earlier versions of Windows, or Max OS or Android or Ios.

It looks and feels like a grown-up operating system and, as a developer, features such as opening the desktop with no 'hourglass' when I run some apps and just opening full screen for others opens some doors for us in product development.

The ease of use whether using keyboard/mouse or touch screen or a combination is so intuitive that our users don't even notice the transition and never have problems accidentally scrolling when they meant to swipe to close, or have issues trying to position the mouse in the corner of multiple desktops!

Well done Microsoft - this is the future of the desktop and the tablet, rolled into one.
