I have just played with Windows 8 a little, but from my perspective it is not very intuitive for people used to Windows 7. For instance, I had to search on the Internet how to restart the machine. However, once this initial learning effort is over, I think it becomes fairly easy to use.
In general, the experience reminds me of Office 2007 and the Ribbon - if you keep your mind open it will go from the initial to
You are probably right.
Many people have a problem with change in general.
On the other hand, not all change is really an improvement. But you gotta at least give it a chance instead of simply not accepting it.
for the response of "I have not used Windows 8 yet". It would be interesting to have that broken down to
1) I still use Windows 7.
2) I still use Windows Vista.
3) I still use Windows XP.
4) I still use Windows 2000.
5) I still use Windows NT.
6) I still use Windows Me.
7) I still use Windows 98.
8) I still use Windows 95.

It can feel strange on a PC. The start menu and apps are designed to take over the entire screen, this is counter intuitive to many of us more advanced users who will have lots of windows open at once. For example, I'd like to look into the apps more, but as they hang around taking up the screen while loading, I tend to dismiss them and then just google everything I need in new tabs. Will be different for everyone I guess.

Not only that but many advanced users have multiple monitors. I have yet to see (or hear about) how it handles this.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
