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 WTF | :WTF: to Cool | :cool:
